Our Five Ring Circus: Wife of the Year

Wife of the Year

If this were an award, I should be nominated. Seriously.

As of tomorrow, my husband will have fulfilled a lifetime dream. A lifetime dream of owning something I'm not very fond of.

As of tomorrow, I will have a new roommate. If I wake up to find my new roommate staring at me, I'm going to be seriously freaked out. I'm not going to even think about my fear of finding this new roommate in my bed. If that would ever happen (and I've read about this happening), I would be scarred for life.

Grant is beyond excited. He already has a list of names on his Blackberry. One of which is Bette Midler. He wanted to give that name to the first cat we adopted together, and I refused. It would make this new roommate a bit(e) more endearing. I suggested Barbara Sssssssstreisand, but he's not going for it. I don't know why not. It's a perfect name.

He owes me. BIG TIME.

If you haven't figured out yet what he's getting, let me give you a few clues: It's long. It's fast. It eats disgusting things. It has fangs...and a forked tongue. It makes me shudder.

I never imagined (NEVER!) that I would share my living quarters with a snake.

I am a REALLY nice wife. He better not forget that!

Stay tuned for my Meet the Snake post tomorrow....



  1. OK, my feet are totally off the floor right now. But if it ate any mice I might have, it might be worth it. Nah - it's not. Good luck!

  2. In NO way am I that good of a wife. You deserve something nice and sparkly for this!

  3. I don't know what to say. Is you crazy??? Or is he totally wonderful in every other way?

    You truly ARE a wonderful wife. And he better NOT forget it. Too many of us would gladly remind him of it!

  4. Oh goodness. NO NO NO. No snakes ever. Yes, you are a very good wife.
