Blogvile Paw-lice in Action
Dad is a Mechanical Engineer. Or at least he TELLS Mome he is. :-) For you see, Mom has never actually seen his workplace or a paycheck, but large amounts of money just show up in their savings account. Mom teases him a little about it. Sure, you can go to Google and type in his name and a Patent or two comes up, but that could be a clever ruse.
A day or so ago, Mom came home unexpectedly early, and on the clothesline downstairs where Dad had done some laundry before running an errand were all these gloves. Dozens of gloves, all stained with dark rust-like colors that wouldn't come out.
As a Blogville Paw-lice officer, I was right on that suspicious behavior.
Mom hears the back door open, then footsteps in the kitchen followed by a creak at the top of the stairs ... She peers up and asks him as she holds up one of the creepy stained gloves.
"So babe - tell me again - mechanical engineer . . . or serial killer?"
She thinks she made him snort his beer.
Fortunately, he doesn't have to go to the plant Friday as he has a vacation day that's a use or lose day. Mom has to work but it is telework on Friday so he can see what she does during the day and we can all eat lunch together.
You all have a safe, and sane Thanksgiving. Whoever you're with.
