Chap stick vs. Glue stick

A few days ago, we made a quick stop at Walgreen's and apparently Mr. Incredible actually noticed that I bought a big, Cherry-Pepsi chap stick. (Wow, say that 5 time fast.) Since then, I haven't given it another thought.  This morning, in an effort to improve my vocabulary, in an effort to appear smarter than I am, I glued some interesting words and phrases onto a card so that I could read and memorize them.  I had just finished doing this when the phone rang, and I ran to answer it.  Can you see where this is going? Yep, I left the glue stick on the night stand, by the phone right next to our bed!  Fast forward to tonight. Mr. Incredible's alter ego the "Janitor" was dutifully taking out the garbage. With a garbage bag in one hand and wiping his mouth frantically with the sleeve of the other he comes howling out of the bedroom saying, "Who did that? WHO PUT THE GLUE STICK BY MY BED?" (Spoken like, "Who's that trip-trappin' on my bridge?" or, "Who's been sleeping in MY bed?") I tried not to appear completely giddy as I realized what had happened and replied, "Oh, honey... did you really put that on your lips?" Still trying to wipe them (and his teeth) on the sleeve of his jacket he said, "I thought it was that new Pepsi chap stick you just bought!" Unable to contain my laughter I said, "I guess that means there won't be any more kissing tonight..."

I sure wish it had been the glue stick with the purple glue - he likes purple.

  1. OK, let me clarify... it was dark, I am blinder than I have ever been, fortunately, my lips weren't chappy - but the thought of yummy wild cherry Pepsi was making that little thing under my tongue "GLEEK" and I had to give it a shot. When I put it on - my first thought was - "wow, my taste buds are either on their way out or this stuff is old!" I didn't even notice it was glue until I hit the hall way with it in my hand on my way to inform Elastigirl (not woman - sheesh, watch some tv girl) and saw the label in the hall. The really funny thing is that my first reaction when I read the label was, "hey, Elmer was my grandpa's name". Then it hit me...

    YEA, kissing was out that night but payback is a bitch - and I'm the banker!
