D.C. = Dummy

Friday night, David and I watched "Burn After Reading"...during one scene, a wallet is opened, and a Washington, D.C. driver's license is shown...a lot like this one.

I made the comment, "I didn't realize D.C. had their own license."

To which David replied, "Well yeah, of course they do."

I asked him, "Why do you say that? I didn't know that."

David: "Well all states do and without D.C. there would only be 49."

I'm not even kidding.

This conversation really did occur.

I took great pleasure in pointing out, to the geography guru, that he was, sadly, mistaken on the number of states and what exactly those states are...

The Forgotten Empty Container

David's mom made chili the other night, and she brought the leftovers to David on Monday.

Thursday night, I opened the fridge to find this...

He had eaten all of it...
and put back the empty container.

When I asked him about this, I got the "I forgot about it" response.

You forgot you emptied the container and then put it back in the fridge as though it wasn't empty??

I'm an aunt!!

My brother, Matt and sister in law, Elizabeth had baby Harper on Thursday December 3 at 4:33pm! She weighed in at 7lbs, 8oz and 19 3/4" long.

Isn't she precious??

And I know Becky will update just as soon as she can, but baby Cormac made his debut pretty much around the same time as Harper, but was actually born on December 4 since they are 7 hours ahead of us...He weighed in at 8 lbs., 13 oz. and is 21 3/4 inches long.

I think he looks just like big brother Gus did when he was born...

Yay for babies!!

David and I both have been awfully clumsy lately.

At work on Wednesday, I somehow managed to get a paper cut on my eyeball.

Yes, that's right. I said EYEBALL.

So I now have one dilated eye, which makes my vision a little funky. And I prefer not to know what it makes ME look like.

And last night, while getting up from the chair in the den, David dropped a glass on the tile floor.

And of course it shattered everywhere.

But the amazing thing about this, is how in the world did he manage to live as long as he did without me??

Tatumbell was sitting in my lap when he dropped the glass, so I had to hold on to him so he would not wander over and wind up stepping in some tiny piece of glass.

David jumped up and looked at what he had done.

He began to move the ottoman out of the way to get to all of the glass.

On his way to get the broom and dustpan, he decided he needed the overhead light on.

And this is the part that absolutely amazes me...

He started pulling on the chains, both of them, of the light/fan in the den.

But neither one were coming on.

"Seriously??" he said loudly. "ALL these bulbs are out?? Gaahhhhh..." (he was getting visibly frustrated at this point...)

No, ALL the bulbs were not out.

Not even one actually.

The switch on the wall needed to be turned on first.
