So. As I've said before, Bruce and I are sometimes like two ships passing in the night. It's been a particularly long and dark night over the last 2 weeks, as his sous chef has been on vacation. He's worked 13 of the last 14 days. And his days are super long. Typically in times like this, we text a lot. Sad but true.
A few Sundays ago in the insanity of pancakes, cello lessons, sleep overs, and catch up, I asked him if he knew about "tea parties". We used to talk for hours about social and political issues. Not so much anymore. It puts both of us over the edge. So in an attempt to preserve our limited quality time, we stay away from the frustrating stuff.
Well. I was tired of talking about the kids. Sue me. So in the midst of Sunday Morning Insanity I said something like have you heard about tea parties?
B: tea parties?
M: I dunno. tea parties. tea bagging. tea something...
B: looks at me kinda funny where have you heard about it?
M: it's been for a while... you know I'm so unplugged... I really should know more about it... a lot of people have been talking about it...
then I burned the pancakes or something
Flash forward to Friday. We're both at work, running like idiots, trying to touch base via texts
B: Really looking forward to monday. more later. Did you find out about tea b*gging?
M: No. Other than sarah palin saying stupid things @ one. Ty's lesson was changed to monday.
B: do you know tea b*ggin'?
M: Don't know tea b*gging I'm still thinking tea parties and why is he stuck on this anyway?
B: Did you not ask me a few days ago about it?
M: I did. What are they?
B.: OK. I thought tea b*ggin was either when someone gives **** to a woman *** *** *** *** OR when a man **** **** **** ***. Where did you hear about it?
M: no. NO NO NO. TEA PARTIES!. Some ultra conservative take back the country from Obama Limbaugh Beck creepy thing.
B: oops. I guess I misunderstood the question.... sorry
I don't know what he thought about my Sarah Palin reference. Must think I surf political p*rn in my spare time.
