A Typical Evening in the Monroe Household

ME: Give it to me!

HIM: No.

ME [reaching]: Gimme!

HIM: No. Stop it.

ME [fighting for it, getting irritated]: Seriously, give it up!

HIM: NO! You had it last night.

ME: Two minutes worth, maybe... I need it NOW!

Pitter-patter of little feet down the hallway...

MISS PRISS [raises eyebrows, fakes annoyance]: Ahem!

ME: Daddy won't give me the remote.

MISS PRISS [smirks and makes a quick move.]

I had the left covered, Miss Priss dove for the right hand, and the component in question was readily acquired.

We may not have won the war, but we won the battle.

I carry the damn remote with me, or hide it when he's not around. I like winning the battles.

My Grandma used to say "A little aggravation will make you live longer", if that is true, my guy will live a long, long, time. Heh.

Good one! Only other alternative is do what we do; have two televisions downstairs and one upstairs. If ya don't like what I'm watching, go somewhere else!! ;>)

I saw this over at Blogs of War, and the quote about Mt. St. Helens struck me funny. For some reason it made me think of you. Here's the line:

The key issue is a small explosion without warning."

So, if you ever needed to "define" the blog, you might now have an alternative.

Ah, another reason to remain single, I had forgot about remote wars.

Thanks for the quote, Bryan.

James, there is often similar dialogue that has nothing whatsoever to do with the remote. ; )
