So the blog has been silent. I keep checking back and nothing. Crickets is all I hear.
What is up with that?
I know~ no one wants to follow Jill and all her hilariousness. Someone has to do it...don't be skareddd!
Fine, I'll go.
So this morning, Ruby and I go to the grocery store after we drop the girls at school. It's a pleasant Tuesday morning strolling down the aisles of the RIDICULOUSLY expensive store. When Ruby says, "Ma'am, I need a new ironing board cover. The one we have is brown."
***Now I am thinking in my head*** WTF...I have had that same ironing board and cover since I was first married. (13 years if you are keeping tally) I have NEVER had to replace the cover. It looked brand new when we shipped it over here.
Back to conversation with Ruby...
Me: Brown, why is it brown? Can't you wash it?
Ruby: No. Ma'am. (she then proceeds to tell me why...)
Me: OK. Can you wait until mid October?
Ruby: No problem, Ma'am.
I am pretty sure Ruby thinks I am an idiot.
So, in Singapore the ironing boards are not the same size as the US. I did not have a PO for a brand new Singapore ironing board, so I am having to have my mom bring some ironing covers over when she comes in October.
I ask you ladies, how is that I can go my entire adult life not knowing you need to have replacement covers for your ironing board? Is it reasonable to believe that you can go through a cover in 3 months? I am so perplexed by this. Granted she does use it almost everyday but still! Have you had to replace yours?
How many covers should I request from my mom? Can you tell that I will be thinking about this all day long?
Let me reiterate, I am pretty sure Ruby thinks I am an idiot. I don't know about ironing boards and there are lots of other things as well that she has had to ask for...ie mashed potato masher...seriously, I ain't rich. When Jill makes mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving at my house I am pretty sure she uses a fork...so now you can call me RICH because we have one now. So, Jill, in 3 years when I am back on American soil for Thanksgiving I will have a masher for your delicious garlic mashed potatoes. And I will take an ice bomb as well.
What Ruby wants Ruby gets!
