Me: Adrian Berzenji, how may I...
Wife: Hey! Guess what?!
Wife: I found some Tupperware!
Me: Really? Tupperware eh. Good stuff. I didn't really know we were looking for Tupperware though.
Wife: Yea! And lots of it!
Me: Thats great. You called me at work to tell me you found Tupperwear?
Wife: Yea! Its all the Tupperware from when I was a kid!
Me: So, you actually found... 30 year old Tupperware.
Wife: Isn't that great!?
Me: Yea... great. Oh look, my Manager just walked in... gotta go.
... a little while later ...
Wife: Guess what?!
Me: More Tupperware?
Wife: YES! And its the camping stuff this time.
Me: Terrific... so, where are you finding this?
Me: Oh... you kno...
Wife: Oh hold on! I gotta go! I gotta call Marg! *click*
... a little while later again ...
Me: Good afternoon, Adrian Berzenji spe...
Wife: Do you have an American Address?
Me: Uh, no. I do have a 2nd wife in Utah... I can ask if we can use her address.
... a little while later again ... again ...
Wife: Margs in!
Me: Margs in? What do you mean Margs in? How much Tupperware are you buying that people have to be "in"? Last time I said someone was "in" they were helping me hide a body.
Wife: Well, the eBay people wont ship to Canada...
Me: So you have to hide the eBay sellers body?
Wife: ... and we don't have an American Address.
Me: Right. Thats why we are having my 2nd wife in Utah help...
Wife: ... but Marg knows someone with an American Address!
Me: She's quite lovely. I think you would like her...
Wife: Do you know how much it would cost to ship 30 pounds of Tupperware to Canada?
Me: ... and we have 17 children.
See, I think my wife is starting to loose it. Getting a little stir crazy.
Now, I could be wrong... but I think she has gone well past the 'nesting phase' and is entering into new and uncharted territories.
We've had 3 children already.
That's like, a combined total of 27 months of pregnancy.
But I do think this is harder on her.
She has already been nesting by having:
- redone the kitchen
- redone the windows
- repainted the interiour of the house
- moved the children's rooms
- repainted the children's rooms
- refurnished the children's rooms
- painted the exteriour of the house
- painted the doors
- ... and I'm sure the list goes on.
Now, now she is distracting herself with eBay.
This is not going to end well.
I need someone to post a lot of Tupperware for sale on eBay... and say you will ship to Canada.
Then... after she bids, just don't ship the Tupperware! See! Brilliant! Problem solved. :-)
Similarity, we were at a school fundraiser, and she was bidding on some Design Consultation services... it is not that I mind having a designer coming to the house to evaluate things... its the 5000$ Shoe Rack that I'm going to have to buy that is the issue.
So, maybe I'll start a fund to help pay for the eBay distractions...
... but I'll do that later.
Right now, I have to go cut the internet connection.
