I'm not sure how many of you actually read the story about my beautiful roses from my wonderful husband. It was a post in my other blog. I never gave the actual reason because I felt it wasn't that important to share - until now.
That particular time, Garnet was out shopping at Home Depot when he was supposed to be here with Tim - so I could go to a very important Doctor's Appointment. Obviously, he felt horrible for forgetting - and I have forgiven him.
Today, however I am beginning to realize now that hamburgers have been nixed from the diet maybe I'm fighting another love in his life; Home Depot.
8 o'clock this morning Garnet was off to the lovely Depot to look at carpet and who knows what else. With both sets of keys.
I called Home Depot hoping to find someone with a good sense of humour;
"Hi, I'm sure you have many cases of lost husbands wandering around Home Depot and their wives wondering where they are...."
A snotty "What?" was the only response.
I tried to be serious and asked her politely if there was any way for me to get my husband out of Home Depot. "Could you page him out of his dream-like stupor and ask him to return his wife's keys....?"
She sighed rudely and said she'd try. (remind me to give up on my comedy act)
I wouldn't have cared except that I was supposed to be at work a half hour ago.
When that didn't work I decided to walk. I was just going to get Tim's bike when the doorbell rang. There was Garnet's friend, Rob. Ironically, the same friend that hunted him down at Home Depot the first time.
"You have a knack for showing up in time to witness husband of the year, Rob!"
Rob gave me a ride to work. We talked about how Garnet's one track mind might benefit from a little more brains. Garnet called me a 1/2 hour later. I grabbed the phone with a big smirk on my face, while 4 women sat around me laughing waiting to see what was going to happen. Obviously, I have to keep my sense of humour, I do love this man.
"Roses just ain't gonna solve this one, Babe."
