Five Questions Friday: Anyone want a Martini?

Q: Did you notice the perfectly formed martini glass in this pic? I knew CoCo Kitty looked so familiar… Looks like there’s an olive in there too.
Eric: What? Where?
Look at her face!
Oh. Now I see it.  

Q: So how about you tell everyone about what you said to me before I left for my pottery class?
Eric:  What? Don’t remember.
You know, the comment you said after I told you my class would be over at 5:00 pm and maybe I would be home early because I will be the best in class and leave hours before everyone else.
Oh, that.
Yeah, that.
So unfair! I was joking with my wife! You can’t bring that up.
Hey, it’s my blog. I can ask what I want. So shall I say it?
Well, I don’t want you to but I’m SURE you are going to.
You said, and I quote, “Highly unlikely” in reference to me being done early because I’m so good.
Okay – I was totally joking! You know that I know I think you’re the best in everything.
Yeah, I know… 

Q: So was it really that bad that I was the last person to show up at my class… I was only 5 minutes late!
Eric: I knew that would happen when you wanted to know the last possible minute you could leave to make it in time.

Q: You just had me log on to your Facebook page. Did you know you had about 40 friend requests and a bunch of private messages? When was the last time you checked your page?
Eric: Haven’t gone on facebook in a real long time.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: That you were NOT the first person to arrive at your pottery class! Instead, you were the last!
I know… sorry…

Five Questions Friday: Love and Passion

Q: How much are you loving our new Fairy Godmother “Mona” ornament your mom got us?
Eric: Are you showing a pic? because Mona is very well-endowed.
That’s all you have to say? Did you know she’s the godmother of love and passion? I didn’t know that they had “themes” when I picked it out. I would’ve looked for the one that said “Money.” Sorry…
No. The only Mona I know was Ross’ girlfriend on Friends.

Q: For my pottery class tomorrow, can I use your Tool Tote Basket for my jars of clay tools?
Eric:  Sure, I always encourage people to use my baskets to the shagrin of many of my students that put their baskets on shelves.

Q: What a long and busy day, at least for me. What did you do today?
Eric: I played with the cat.
So a typical day for you.

Q: I got an email from Karen about an hour ago reminding me of an email she sent me back in 2004. And in it she was inviting me over for dinner… they were making roasted chicken and potatoes. And she finished it with saying they are eating the same thing tonight! Isn’t it weird that YOU are making roasted chicken and potatoes tonight as well? Did you two talk?
Eric: For one, we both know Eric cooked the dinner so shouldn’t you be asking if I had talked to Eric?
Oh yeah, you’re right.

Q: What aggravated you this week?
Eric: Jaxson now figuring out that my wife will allow him on the living room couch.
Hey! I only did that because when you were gone to Michigan he whined for days non-stop! It was the only thing that pacified him. Now I can’t get him off. You will have to fix that.
