A fun time

I would blog about my dinner with Faythe last night, but she did such a good job of it that you should just go to her blog and read all about it. The only things she left out were:
1) It had been raining hard and as we were walking down the sidewalk toward the restaurant a truck came down the street and splashed water all over Faythe, that kind of sucked for her I'm sure. and
2) In the resturant there was a big screen tv in the corner that was showing COPS the entire time we were there.

I suppose I should clarify the origin of Max's emo corn comment. We were in my our favorite fun store The Dollar Tree and I came across black corn holders. So I said "look Max, emo corn holders!" to which Max replied "Emo kids don't eat corn Mom". Max has a very dry sense of humor--VERY dry, and it's hard to tell when he's making a joke, so for a second I pondered why emo kids wouldn't eat corn until I realized he was just being a smart aleck as usual. I happen to think emo kids do like corn, if for no other reason than it gets stuck in their teeth and then they can sing a really whiny song about it.

In other exciting news, I bought a lawn mower yesterday. I put a lot of thought into what kind of mower I would like, and I chose an electric mower, because I do not want to deal with the gas and oil stuff, I just want to flip a switch and have it come on. I used to have my grandma's old electric mower, a Sunbeam, and I remember quite enjoying the lawn mowing experience. So I was at the Home Depot with Leo and we had this big electric lawn mower box on the cart and as Leo was pushing it towards the check out, I noticed that men would look at the box and then shoot me a harsh look tinged with pity. Like I was a wimp for getting an electric mower. I make no apologies! I bought the mower that I would use, so be it! Apparently, it is emasculating for a man to use an electric mower, but I am not a man, to me it's like a big electric razor and I am shaving my lawn. Take that you gas mower neanderthals!

If that doesn't scream testosterone, I don't know what does. In closing, here is a joke that Leo got out of a kids magazine.

Q; What did one math book say to the other?
A: We've got lots of problems.

So if you turn on Dr. Phil and see math books on there you know why. Problems. Lots of problems.

Have a problem free day!

Wow. Shows how much I know. I didn't even know they made electric lawnmowers! If only they would start making them in pink...

Electric lawnmowers are fantastic. I don't have to waste gas driving to the gas station, to buy gas, so I can mow my lawn. It's not loud, heavy or nearly as smelly. Plus, I've never had any of the motor problems that come along with a gas mower. I bought a very nice two year old black and decker at a yard sale the other day for $19.

Emo kids definitely don't eat corn. They just cry all day.
