Happy Friday; Witch and Wizard

Wizard and I were watching a TV show that mentioned flying monkeys.

Me, ” Can we have a flying monkey?”

Wizard looked over at me from the recliner he was bogarting.  “That’d be cool.”

Me, “And name him Bo Bo?”

Wizard, “Works for me.”

Damn, Wizard is easy tonight! Even if he is taking the recliner I like to read in.

And then, with a totally straight face he asks, “Where do you go to get a flying monkey?”

See, I was expecting him to ask why I wanted to name the flying monkey BoBo. And I was ready to launch into the story of that. But no.  Instead he led me right in to his Reality Check Trap.  And ruined all my fun. So I looked at him sitting all smug in my recliner and replied, “Did I mention I ate all the Klondike Bars?”

“You’re lying. You never eat those. You are making that up.”

“Nope. I have PMS and I ate them. All. Every one of them.” I stared him down.

He finally snapped down the foot rest, stomped into the kitchen and opened the freezer.

I jumped up and got in the recliner and called out, “Amateur. ”

“Ha,” he answered.  “That’s Amateur-Eating-A-Klondike-Bar to you, Witch.”

Happy Friday, Witches! Hope you all have a great weekend! Oh and I’ve given up on the flying monkeys, but I found this picture at I Can Has A Hotdog:

I want him and I’ll name him Yoda! Can’t wait to tell Wizard…bwhahahaha!!!

    Genius, pure genius! I can’t fake RenMan out, I have to rely on pure intimidation. A threat to sit in his lap does it every time! No squatters allowed in my chair.

    Yoda is perfect! I really prefer big dogs, but I have always said that if I ever got a small dog I would get one that I could name Godzilla or Ghengis.

    Oh goodness that is funny. My family usually starts on each other with zingers while I am driving. I can not tell you how often I have had to pull over because my son and husband have had me laughing so hard I could not see strait. Now when ever we tell the kids we are going some where he gets this look on his face as he asks “So who’s driving?” My family can be a riot sometimes and I never have a recorder near by. I guess I need to hide one in the car.

    Off to another football game tonight- May be saturday I will get myself some new jeans this time.

    Have a safe and fun weekend every one.

    Happy Friday, witches! The heat finally broke here. It’s all of 57 degrees so I’m passing around hot toddies instead of appletinis and then I am going to happy dance!

    Jen, you and the Wiz are so funny! Lawyer Guy and I usually gang up on The Only to pull stuff like that. ;) Yoda is perfect! You should go shopping this weekend. *nodnodnods*

    Viki, isn’t he cute? I just want to hug him and buy him treats :-)

    Our boys want to know why we were such annoying parents when they were growing up. Now-a-days, we can be so much more relaxed.

    Julie, love the intimidation! That works too. We actually have two of the exact same chairs, but we both like THAT spot. We are such children these days.

    I love big dogs too, but I really like almost all dogs. But a face full of personality will get me every time.

    Kat, that’s great! I love it! The kids have had me laughing that hard–although many times I was trying NOT to laugh because they were being inappropriate. I don’t think I ever had to pull over though–you’ve got some real comedians on your hands!

    Hope you make enough money at the football game to buy whatever you want!

    Silver, I’m so jealous! It’s 101 here today maybe hotter! But you guys really deserve the break in heat so I’m happy for you. Hope your knees are doing ok with the weather change.

    And I totally should go Yoda Doggy Shopping! But then I realize I want in a dog in theory not reality. Sigh.

    I was about to say ‘I can’t believe I missed this post’ but then I remembered yesterday was yard sale day and that pretty much everything got missed.

    You guys are awesome. So, why would you name your flying monkey ‘Bo Bo’?

    I don’t know, Jenn. I think I would name him Demon or Diablo or something like that. Anyone else see that black horns just above his eyes? :twisted:

    And yes, I know this is a late reply, but somehow, I feel awesome because I’m willing to bring up the subject again! :wink:
