So I'm settling in on the couch for the evening, when the Hunny hollers down from upstairs, "Hey Maybelline! Why'd you leave all these lights on in your room? Is your invisible friend still up here? Oh hi, Maybelline's invisible friend! Hey! The lights in the Man Cave are all on, too! Is Oatmeal Head's invisible friend in there? And he's playing Guitar Hero! Get your butts up here and turn off these lights!"
Sorry I've missed a couple of posts. We're just having too much fun for our own good.
Until I write again ...
Well, at least Vince isn't over at your house, cuz Vince swears like a truck driver whenever he leaves the lights on like that.
Invisible friends I can deal with, even when they leave on the lights. It's that evil twin that gets me in trouble. Mabelline, Oatmeal Head---Hunny has a great sense of humor!
At our house, their names are Ida Know and Not Me.
We had to set some boundaries for Ida when Jock hit puberty. She got frustrated with that and decided she'd be better friends with Bug. Apparently, she and Not then figured they'd just switch friends.
My husband is 72 and he still cannot find a light switch. If I do not go around turning things off at night they will still be on in the morning. The Amish have it going on. Just don't plug in. All I need is a computer.
We have recently started the whole light switch thing too......hmmmmm
We have lots of invisible friends here too, especially since my children are generally afraid of the dark.
What is it with teens and the inability to turn anything off? sheesh. I may give them the power bill to pay next month.
My dad used to ask if we owned stock in the electric company ...
I'm bad about leaving lights on - thankfully I have my child to tell me turn the lights off Mommy!
LOL at this and Karen Deborah's comment.
I'll bet if I used a treadle-powered sewing machine, I'd trim a few inches off my waistline.
I think your kids invisible friends moonlight at our house. They are meaner here though. They do things like hit little sisters and make the cat make that squeek noise cats do when you squeeze them.
I have to tell you - after years of telling the kids to shut off lights, Larry is now the one leaving them on. Like all the time. What is up with that do you suppose?
