Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



My Crack Wife

So I am laying in bed trying to go to sleep.

Its late. No, oopz, early.

I have a short early journey tomorrow.

Something is broken.

I must fix it.

Suddenly out of the dark dark (one mo' time:dark) blue, my wife says, "One of my children must have stepped on a crack and broke their mother's back" - and giggles.

I crack up laughing.

She says, "What's the matter, haven't chu ever heard that before? Its when kids are playing and they step on a crack in the sidewalk ..."

I interrupt and say, "Yes, I have heard the original version, but I've just never heard a mother use it to justify her sore back."

Surprisingly in the time it took me to type this plus get the dog a piece of cheese, she has fallen asleep and I'm now the one wide awake with a severe headache that just happened, bizarre.

I'm glad to see that it is also bad to step on the cracks of pavements (sidewalks) in the USA too.

She gave you her sore back but left it in your head.

Bizarre indeed, maybe you need a piece of cheese.

I completely misunderstood the title and thought this post would have something to do with your wife and the narcotic also know as 'crack'.
Thank God it was otherwise :D

Aysh: In my world everytime I can figure out a blog title that can be easily misunderstood I consider that a bonus and reason to celebrate, especaLLy if I can humor my lovely wife. She laughed when I called her that early this morning.

I love middle of the night marital giggles. And I'm stealing your wife's line.
