• Here’s what I said to Zen-Den first thing this morning:
“What do you want to do… oh never mind, we can’t do that.”
• Here’s what I was thinking as I said what I said:
“What do you want to do…
…it’s cold outside this morning, we should make waffles… yeah waffles… oh no, we don’t have any whole wheat flour or buttermilk to make Alton Brown‘s basic waffles… phooey… hey wait a minute, we could make those cornmeal waffles that are so good with maple syrup on them… yeah waffles… wait… i used all the cornmeal last week to make cornbread to go with the chili… humph… i really need to put those items on the grocery list…
oh never mind, we can’t do that.”
• Here’s what he said to me upon hearing my statement:
• And then here is what he did– and has continued to do off and on for the last three hours. He stepped away from me as if he was on stage, and started singing/dancing/arm moving to the Backstreet Boys classic hit, “I Want It That Way.” Except that he changed the words to:
“I WANT IT YOUR WAY.”
• And here is what I’m thinking:
Great idea. But could you lose the bad singing, goofy dancing and ridiculous arm gestures when saying it. It’d make me think that you were more sincere– and really meant what you are saying!

Cracking up over here. Where is the pic from in your heading?? Swear I have walked there.
Cheri, I laughed at first, too. Now… not so much.
Photo is on boardwalk at Sanibel Harbor Marriott. It connects the hotel to adjacent properties and goes over a pond and swampland. Very pretty to walk on. Very nice to not walk on creepy stuff.
[Okay, it’s later in the day and I’ve taken the photo away because it won’t work with this new template that I like. So, Cheri, you may of been the only person to see my test template. That’s a special honor, you know!]
I think I may have walked there. We’ve been ALL OVER Sanibel. Love that place. We have a condo in Naples that we get to visit a couple times a year and we always try to get to Sanibel.
I feel honored!
After you go shopping, could you invite me over for waffles? I haven’t made waffles in a long, long time.
You betcha, Zazzy. Consider yourself invited. 😉
Relyn, I was laughing too. Z-D can be pretty darned funny when he wants to be. And his dancing with the words was great.
That’s funny! I made Alton Brown’s french toast this morning 😉
I’ve never tried his french toast recipe. I should give it a try. His basic waffles recipe is very easy & consistently good.
Ok, that’s both awesome and an extremely realistic portrayal of normal interactions with my husband.
Lauren, sounds like you have yourself a goof just like mine! He made me laugh, but drove me bonkers all at the same time.
Hey, consider yoruself lucky. I could have Bieber Fever . . .
Oh my! I never thought of that possibility. I suppose you could, couldn’t you? On second thought, I really ❤ the Backstreet Boys. Oh yes I do.
