Well, about the time the first snowflake fell last fall we decided if we had more than three snowflakes at the same time it would be time to head south for the warmer climes. After all the snow and cold during the months of November and December that time has finally come....time to pack up the 5'ver and head for the open road. Here's the way that conversation went:
He: Are you ready to go?
She: I just have a few more things to pack.
He: Are you ready yet?
She: Just give me a little more time
He: How much longer, dear?
She: I will be ready soon, I still need to go to the grocery, do a load of wash, feed the dogs, and take down the Christmas tree
He: How about if I go to the grocery for you?
She: Okay, here is the list, make sure you get everything on it.
One hour later:
He: Where would you like this truckload of groceries?
She: In the 5'ver, of course
He: Where do you plan to put all this food? Why do we need six cans of beans, three dozen doughnuts and who's gonna eat a twelve pound turkey?
She: Well, I didn't want you to go hungry and there may not be any grocery stores nearby
He: How soon will you be ready to go?
She: Oh just give me a few more minutes
He: (a little impatient) Aren't you ready yet?
She: Just hold your horses - another minute or two
He: I am starting the truck
She: Okay, one more minute, don't rush me
Half hour later
He: The truck has been running , it is all warmed up and if you're not ready in five minutes I am leaving without you
She: Okay! Okay! (knowing he won't leave the cook at home)
Five minutes later as the truck begins to slowly move out of the driveway she comes running out of the house carrying two sacks, a box, and dragging the vacuum cleaner.
She: Wait for me!! Wait for me!! --- I still need another minute!!
That's it for today.
