|This is Mr. & Mrs. C.|
Not even joking.
He is a chemist who invents stuff. Like the individual Country Crock little cup thingies that you get at some restaurants? He invented the grease-proof lidding that you peel off. At one time, he made all the creamer lids in the country. He also develops tamper-evident packaging and safety packages for medical stuff. (I'm sure these all have very technical terms, but I have no idea what they are.) All I know is that this translates into our real lives.
It means he likes things done right.
I like things done quick.
So, when he occasionally goes out of town (today, Illinois), I get some things done quickly. (Not necessarily rightly.)
Here's how I put up the cute little chalkboard I got from the estate sale a few weeks ago:
|The cobwebs were free!|
|This really is a legit rag. Not just something I picked up off the floor and called a rag.|
|screw eyes and picture wire|
|Winston Churchill, keeping the world safe for democracy.|
|and eenie, meenie, minie, moe. |
|This is a naked wall. What? Cover that sucker up, fercryin' outloud!|
5. I found some more stuff from the junk drawer.
|These looked pretty good.|
|The heel of this sandal looks like it might make a good hammer.|
This is what my husband will see tomorrow when he comes home, if it doesn't crash in the middle of the night and scare me out of my wits.
