The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Evening news

Jupiter, FL -- Power comes back on this evening at 5:30 p.m. (EDT) after five days without. Local 30-something woman does a jig in the road, then suggests to hubby that they both go down the road to where the utility workers are and give them all a round of BJs in gratitude even though A) both are happily married and wouldn't stray and B) hubby is not gay. Hubby politely declines saying if he ain't getting one, nobody's getting one so wife respectfully retracts offer.

In other related news, sorry to report, Pazel, that the knights in shining armor for this neighborhood were not from PG&E. Instead they came in chariots of orange emblazoned with the shield of CSVP (where the heck are they from?). Regardless of their point of origin, the out-of-state crews are heroes to all who were stricken by Jeanne's winds and water. A peaceful night's sleep will be had by all now that the drone of generators has ceased.
(okay, but seriously, a round of BJs? nope, not gonna happen but, hey, it's the thought that counts, right? plus I couldn't think of anything else that a man would really appreciate as a thanks--I mean, getting a thank you card or a plate of homemade brownies just doesn't do it for them like it does for us gals sometimes, ya know?)

I had a conversation with a co-worker about BJs...but in the most tasteful sense. I told him that Bill Clinton should have used his to promise people "Hey, if the President can get them in the Oval Office, everyone should have one...EVERY MALE in America will get one if you vote for me". Telling you - best campaign slogan ever! (Just not for us ladies. :) ).

Thanks for the laugh....glad to hear you have power again!
