A Note of Retraction

My wife wanted me to post this yesterday, but I had to let my previous post run its course. Apparently my wife is not losing it entirely. We found this out when we discovered that Touchdown actually had two, count them, two separate toenails that are falling off. She was not delusional after all.

I retract my previous statement in all of its glory, but wait, I think I will continue with a post on the very forgetfulness I pointed out with the previous post. After all, she is still losing it. The evidence:

1. While making Lemon Chicken and Rice, the wife totally forgot to put in the lemon juice, hence we almost had just Chicken and Rice.

2. While leaving the house yesterday to go to Grandma and Grandpa Jones' 4th of July shindig, the wife totally forgot the Doritos and the cucumbers she was asked to bring.

3. The wife, in doing a favor to my mother, promised to bring a pound of ground beef to their house last week so my mom wouldn't have to go to the store. She defrosted it and set it out, but ultimately left it sitting in the fridge chilling.

4. The wife after promising to give me a back rub for our anniversary just totally forgot and I got bupkis for the big day.

Okay that last one was totally made up, but as much as she is forgetting stuff, I thought I'd give it a shot. Maybe she will be gullible enough to feel guilty and give me a back rub. Shhhhh. Don't anybody say anything.

Umm, excuse me, but didn't The Wife just recently give birth? We all know she gets at least a year to get some brain cells back. Plus she keeps track of you, huh? In and of itself, no small feat, I'm sure!!! ;-)

I usually chose my battles carefully, but I think the forgetfulness of "The Wife" is not at all associated with the birth of touchdown. "The Wife" is on countdown, having her daughter arriving back from a 6 week visit with her father. "The Wife" was having all sorts of feelings on the 4th. none of which are understandable unless you are waiting for a child to return home. Good luck "The Wife" just remember which airline she arrives at in Vegas.

Alright now, just how old is "the wife"? ( I think it is time for a name for this wife, I would be offended being called, "the Wife") all the time.
My daughter is always forgetting things, like the car keys, the cell phone, her head. Let's get these women some Ginko and a pen & note card. Works for me, though I can now claim pre Altimers.

1. she probably doesn't like lemon juice, did this on purpose cuz she's sick of making it for you, that's right, she making you dinner AGAIN
2. i'd leave the doritos home too, good call
3. well, she did defrost it and set it out, maybe someone else in the house could help out a little bit
4. good luck with that one and you can count on me not to say a thing;)

Oh. My. Good. Lord.

You better have a good supply of allen wrenches Jones, you are going to need them once The Wife reads your post. You can't write a Note about your spouses forgetfulness! Have you lost your mind?

Haha. Ginko. I had an aunt who was taking that once, until the day that she forgot whether she had taken her ginko yet.
