I Had Him At Home Depot

Hi Sweetcakes, how is your day going?

“Hi Hubs. I’m bored. I’m so bored I’m entering contests for all kinds of goodies like shoes, food, runner-swag, marathon tickets… And I even entered dumb contests too. Like I took a survey three different times for a chance to win a five-thousand dollar Home Depot gift card; I don’t even know why, it’s not like Home Depot sells shoes. Or food. Or any runner stuff. In fact, what in the Hell would I buy at Home Depot if I won a five-thousand dollar gift card? And with my luck, that’s probably the contest I’ll win. Actually, I really want to win the Rock N Roll Marathon Series 3-Race Tour Pass, wouldn’t that be cool? We’d only have to pay for one of us, and we could do three races next year: Nashville, Virginia Beach and Las Vegas. You know, we could do them all anyway, even if I don’t win a tour pass. What do you think?”


“Hubs? Hello? Hubs?”

Yeah. Sure. I’m here.

“What happened? You space out? I thought we got disconnected.”

Oh. No. I’m here. I was just thinking…

“Ohhh. I lost you at five-thousand dollar Home Depot gift card, huh. After that I probably sounded like Charlie Brown’s teacher. Well Hubs, you just agreed to do three marathons with me in 2014. Whoo-hoo! I gotta go. Love you!” (click)

    That reminds me of when I was on the phone with my sister and the phone ran out of juice, so I thought it hung up on her. I went to find another phone to call her back, but to my surprise the phone hadn’t hung up. When I got back on, not only was it working but my sister was still rambling on about something as if I had been listening to her for the last two minutes. Women in my family can talk….

    LOL Oh, that is funny! I’ve learned to “check-in” during the conversation, every once in awhile. But uhmm. To be honest, that HAS happened to me too 🙂

    Home Depot gift card… what can you even do with that? Buy dry wall? A Vacuum cleaner? Do they even sell vacuums? Would it work in the Subway restaurant in there (do they have subways in home depot in the US.. they do in Canada)… even still thats a lot of subs.

      No, no Subways at Home Depot in the US. At least not in the south! They have candy, beef jerky and soda at the checkout line though.. Hmm. Ibwonder if they sell peppermint bark? I could SO get excited about $5,000 of peppermint bark!

        Peppermint is quite delicious.. Maybe you can even repackage it yourself and claim you made it and sell it.. I mean, don’t get all worried about the legalities and false advertisement of that..

        Interesting.. I could even melt them down and reshape them, disguising their true identity. Especially now, since I have a lot of spare time.
