Super Sleuth

28 Oct


My husband has been working quite a few hours this week. 

I’ve been relatively lazy. I’ve worked. I’ve trained a little. I’ve been shopping….more than usual.

I’ve abandoned any semblance of nutritional responsibility. Combine that with shopping and I now have a HUGE bag of Halloween candy in my pantry. It started out okay. A bag of Snicker “fun size” and a bag of “Butterfinger” fun size. The next day I added a bag of “Reese’s pumpkin shaped candy”, a bag of “mini” “P-nut m&m’s”, another bag of “Snickers”, a bag of “Mounds” and a bag of “Payday”.  We only have 8 kids on our block. And that’s counting the two teen agers down the street……

So, anyway, the “Recycle” can (the one inside the house) was full. I took it outside to empty it. As I poured the boxes, Reese’s wrapper, plastic, glass, Snicker wrappers, cans, Mounds wrappers, WHAT? THOSE DON’T BELONG IN THERE! Wait a minute. Theres THREE of everything in here, except the P-nut m&m’s…….hmmmmm.

My sneaky husband actually thinks he can hide the wrappers in the RECYCLE BIN???

I confronted him.

“Hey sweetie! Should I buy some more candy for Halloween?”

“Oh, NO! We have plenty!”

“Really? ‘Cause I found a whole lot of wrappers in the RECYCLE BIN!”

“Those silly dogs!”

“The dogs can’t open the recycle can.”

“That pesky cat!”

“We don’t have a cat.” 

I hope he NEVER grows up! Silly man boy!

    That photo would make a good cover to a mystery novel: Dictionary Deb and the Case of the Opposable-Thumb Canines. And who was responsible for the Peanut M&M wrappers…the parakeet?
