Mixed Priorities or "...but what about the raccoon?"

Hubby: I'm going to Home Depot to get a replacement for that drain cover in our shower.

Me: Wha..? Might I ask why that would be a priority for today?

Hubby: Because it's all cruddy and gross.

Me: Oh, that's right. I forgot that today was Reverse Priority day. Isn't that where we start at the bottom of our to-do list and work our way up to the things that really matter?

Hubby: What do you mean?

Me: I mean there are about 957 other things that need to be taken care of before I would even THINK of replacing that shower drain cover. 

Hubby: What would you rather I do today, then?

Me: I thought you might want to get rid of the dead raccoon in the middle of the kitchen floor, for starters.

Hubby: I hadn't noticed that. 

Me: Clearly. I decided to just leave it there and see how long it took for you to stop stepping over it and actually bend over and pick it up. Yet you notice the shower drain cover.

Hubby: Yep. Well, I'm heading out. Anything else you want me to pick up?

Me: Just the raccoon.



  1. Can't say I've ever had that particular problem Crayon. Has the raccoon been dealt with yet?

  2. It's a running joke around here that there could be a dead animal in the middle of the floor and Hubby would never see it!

  3. This almost isn't funny. Successful satire is always based on truth. :)

  4. So true! At least the raccoon is really cute!

  5. If you can keep your sense of humour with a dead raccoon lying on the kitchen floor you're ok.
    I shall come back for another laugh.

  6. Such a ridiculous example but, unfortunately, not far from the truth! So glad you popped in!


Thanks for stopping by!
