Charlie's Soap


Friday, May 12
Ah, Spring.

Spring 'spri[ng] n.
1. The season of the year, occurring between winter and summer, during which home appliances continue to fail. (see also "washer")

2. The season of the year, occurring between winter and summer, during which yelling obscenities at other drivers is most likely to become awkward as both parties' windows may be down.

Add a $400 tire failing in there too and we're on the same page!!!!!! :)

Sorry to hear about the woes.

I think that's why I never roll the windows down.

But, does this mean a New Washer? Or just cussing at the old one a lot?

I hear ya on the windows thing. Our minivan lets you roll down the windows on the sliding doors (well, not 'roll' but you know). Anyway, the baby loves to open the window so she can feel closer to nature and exhaust fumes. And boy, a few people have gotten an earful as we drive.

lol about #2

Perhaps spring would be a good time to avoid traffic. ;)

Not the washer too?? At this rate it might be cheaper to just go out and hire someone to do all the stuff the appliances used to do....

Yep, same thing is happening around here, my washer died, the vacuum died, and hubby's car died. Must be spring.

Yep. Just replaced the dishwasher. THe automatic one., not my husband. Of course I had it for 25 years. (the automatic one again)

Great definitions...Websters?

Now do I hear an "oops" with that second definition?

Oh no - did something else break?

We don't get spring here - we go straight from 50 degree "winter" to 100 degree "summer" in the time span of about 3 days.

The element on my clothes dryer went last night too!
When you have three boys, one day without doing laundry can really put you behind!
Could I possibly use more exclamation points?!!

Why do I have so much fun laughing at your misfortunes?

(Okay, Hoss, straighten up, feel sorry for the poor lass.

(Yes, you're right ...oh hahahahah...)

Ugh. My 5 year old dishwasher just went today. 5 years seems like the appliance was still in its infancy. They just dont make things like they used to. Sigh. And the prospect of doing dishes by hand until it gets fixed or replaced, just is dreadful.

I think your washer and my dryer are in cahoots. Four service calls later, they THINK it's fixed. Uh-huh.
I can't yell at other drivers; my oldest son tells me to watch my mouth. ; )

I like a high-definition woman.

So what you're saying is... we explore our vocabularies at this time, right?

It also becomes easier to flip someone off because the window is already OPEN and you don't have to bother with the buttons. Right?

Oh. It's just me? Sorry.

Okay, now the dominoes have started falling. The diswasher went last night. Are you a fortune-teller or something?

Happy Mother's day to you and your Mum!

Happy Mother's Day to you and I hope you have a special one with your mom also.

Ok, are your appliances talking to my appliances? Or maybe mine are being bad influences on yours, like those kids down the street around whom "stuff always happens" and the stuff is never good.
