Guys are sneaky

We were at the Seagull Book bookstore a few days ago. As we were leaving, Savannah comes up to me and says excitedly, "Mom! I found the perfect book for you. Serious... you need this book."

*arching an eyebrow* "Okaaaaaayyyyyyyyy...." I responded somewhat uncertainly.

She marches me over to a shelf and picks up this book.

"This is the book you need mom." she again reaffirmed emphatically.

There was a moment of stunned silence as I stood thinking, "Wow, am I really that transparent?"


Sort of.

 At this point I was just trying to keep a straight face. "Uh, okay. Why do you think I need that book?"

"Because! You need to know about guys!" she replied as if stating something obviously obvious.

Unfortunately we didn't have time to discover the inner workings of her curious little mind since there were other little bodies to keep track of. But later that night, I was recounting this event to Hubby. After telling him the title of the book, Savannah pipes up, "Yea, she needs that book because guys are sneaky."

Man, where was this advice like... fifteen years ago? Could of saved me a whole lot of trouble.

But you know what? I think she's on to something.

Hubby and I ordered three bushels of peaches for canning this year. A bushel is about 43 pounds. And we got three.

And you know what happened?

*clearing throat, imitating Hubby's voice* "Oh sorry hun, last minute business trip and all, going to be gone for the week... but uh, those peaches are going to need to get done, so.... good luck with that! And have fun!"

Uh huh! Last minute business trip... seems suspiciously sneaky if you ask me.

Maybe I should tell him a story about a little red hen....

So... anyone up for canning some peaches?

Ya, it is going to be a busy week for you.
I'm up to my armpits in salsa. It ain't pretty.

Hope you enjoy the book about what you need to know about guys.
That Savannah is going to keep you on your toes.

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Ah ha! Clever. :D

Brittney said...

haha ohhhh luke.

Good luck, Serene! I would do it with you if I got to keep some too :) and if I lived closer. I love bottled peaches!

I saw that book in one of the kids book order thingies. Or maybe it was a book catalog that was mailed to me? On the plus side, it is two books in one and one the other side you could have learned what boys need to learn about girls.

The good thing about peaches is you could wait another week and have help making it into (a whole lot of) jam.

And I just bet there is a chapter in that book about guys leaving all of the ___[insert food item]___ work for you to do!

Amy said...

No jam, cobbler, pie, preserves, or peach-jelly thumbprints for THAT sneaky guy!

Rachel Sue said...

We have a bunch off of our tree that need to be canned. Wish you lived closer. We could do it all together. . .

Deila said...

Your daughter is pretty cute -- actually all your kids are darling. I love those stories. Good luck with the canning.

Stef said...

I just want some of those peaches with cream. That would be heavenly. Canning....not so heavenly. Sneaky indeed!

Ben, Heather and kids said...

my husband has played the (not-so) sneaky card here. It's a good thing I love him dearly :)

M-Cat said...

You have fun with those peaches! Seriously, I admire and respect those people who still do their own canning/bottling.

Splenda has tried to be sneaky before, but he just doesn't have it in him : )

Sue said...

I am ashamed to say that I have never canned anything. Not once.

Good luck!\
