Role Model

We were stopped at a traffic light.  OC was trying to get something on the sports  radio channel.  Unfortunately, we live in a reception-free zone.   The light changed and he had to abandon his quest.  As he drove he grumbled.  It seems he’d heard that there are some places on the island where radio from New Zealand comes in.  None of those places are anywhere near us.

“It would be nice to listen to cricket,” he said.

“Well, then take me back to the pet store,”  I answered.  “I will buy you some.”

He shook his head.  “I should have anticipated that.”  Then he added, “You know, you get more beautiful to me every day.”

“Why,” I queried. “Am I starting to look like you?”

OC corrected,  “No.  Sound like me.”

“Oh good!”  I exclaimed.  “For a moment I thought my hair had started falling out.”

OC gave me a sideways glare and grumbled, “You think that’s funny don’t you?”

I shrugged and answered, “What can I say?  I’m a quick learner.”



  1. Honestly… what did he EXPECT you to say about that? THAT was a gimme! Stay on your toes Quilly — I’m sure the tests will get harder!

  2. Smart-assedness breeds smart-assedness.

  3. funny – both of you!
    keep it up 🙂

  4. Well you were two-tired to be nice, right?

  5. The two of you have to be the most entertaining couple since Lucy and Desi. 🙂

  6. Melli — I know you won’t believe this, but he doesn’t always listen to me. Usually the only time my zingers catch him unaware is when he’s only half paying attention.

    Nessa — and with OC as my role model, watch out!

    Polona — I was born lauging and have no plans to change.

    TLP — I couldn’t have been a motorcycle because I was too pooped to putt-putt-putt.

    Silver — now if we could just figure out how to earn the kind of money they did ….

  7. Lucy and Desi, I didn’t even thing of that, Can OC play Babalu on his Trumpet ? 🙂

  8. Bill, I don’t know, I will ask him.

  9. ::giggle::
    You two sound like kids…I love it!

  10. DaBich — since most people guess our ages at much younger then we really are, it works for us! 🙂

  11. I’m impressed that OC likes cricket (the game, not the creature).

  12. Mumma — didn’t OC ever mention that he’s lived in both New Zealand and Australia?
