5 Minutes With The Fossils

Yesterday I stopped by the Fossils. You know, to check on my elderly parents. Plus, my dad needing help printing something off the "computa."
Anyone who's read my blog before, or knows me in real life, knows some of the conversations that have taken place between the Fossils.

Picture it:

I was in the dining room on the computer. My mom (aka Et) was at the kitchen table reading a book. My dad (aka Big Guy) was on his throne, no, not the bathroom one, his recliner in the living room.

Here's what went down:

Big Guy: "Lovey, can you bring me my coffee? I left it in the microwave. "

Et: "Are your legs broken? Get up and get it yourself"

Big Guy: "But I just had a treatment (he had a blue light thing done to his head at the dermatologist) and they told me that I should go home and rest."

Et: "Well, I just had a treatment too (she had been to the dentist) and they told me to rest too."

Big Guy: "Why don't you just bring it halfway, into the dining room, and Laura will bring it the rest of the way to me" *he giggles*

Me: (Shaking my head and getting glimpses of my future when I put these two nut cases in a home)

This is just a typical day at the Fossils. Drinking coffee and resting and reading the newspaper. God, give me strength.


  1. You didn't finish the story! Did the man get his coffee? Who brought it?

  2. Ooops, to finish the story...my mom brought him his coffee. He thanked her with a kiss.
