How often have I said that? More than a few times. Yes, I realize it's manipulation. You got a problem with that? Well, do you? I didn't think so. Maybe if you had a better idea what I'm dealing with, you'd understand.

Lisa: (peacefully paying bills & enjoying music)
Ken: (walking into my office again, already talking) Something, something, blah, blah, blah.... and what the hell are you listening to?
Lisa: What?
Ken: It's 9:30 and the recruiter didn't call. She said she would call at 9:00!!
Lisa: I'm sorry. I know, it's not very professional of her.
Ken: Yeah, and Venkat called and said [a whole lotta stuff].
Lisa: He's the one who meditates.... mmm... I like him.
Ken: Uh, yeah. And [Way. More. Talking.]
Lisa: Honey, would you please get me some Tylenol?
Ken: You can't get it?
Lisa: I'd really prefer if you would.
Ken: Why can't you just do it?
Lisa: Because if you go, then the talking will stop and I'll get Tylenol.
Ken: (goes, comes back with blessed elixir)
Lisa: Thank you. Now, would you please look through your mail pile for...
Ken: Can't. I gotta take a shitter.*
Lisa: That's going on the blog.
Ken: No it's not. You always say that but don't put anything on there.
Lisa: (typing)

* Note to Ricky: I'm sorry. I know your delicate sensibilities are offended by this language. Unfortunately, that is exactly what he said. I'm not covering for his potty mouth any longer. Yes, his mother reads this.

Am I GLAD to hear that it's not just MY husband that needs to announce when he's going to empty his bowels. Gotta be a man thing.
(I remain anonymous, because while he's not alone in his announcements, I am horrified & embarrassed nonetheless.)

Next time Ken, say "I've got to see the man."

And is that the same recruiter you told be about the other night? Fire her a##, the bit##!

I am shocked at Ken.

Was there another comment previously that has been deleted? Something from (apparently) a woman commenting how Lisa should be happy about Ken wanting to talk regardless of how he says things? Is this censorship right here in America? Land of free speech? I sense something sinister afoot here...

Yup, that was (apparently) your previous post.

Nope! I did not post said original post that was mysteriously deleted! I posted the post 2 above about the earlier post being missing and then posted this post to correct the previous post!

If only I could work eating Post cereal while standing next to a post into this thread post haste, my life would be complete...

To Anon. #3: You got it, baby. This is censorship at its absolute finest. Welcome to my blog, where I am queen and can delete any comments I don't like. XO

Dam straight Lisa.

(It was a random, very bitter,to much time on her hands woman who stumbled in and decided to rant....anonymously, of course.)
