Sunday, when I should get off my ... and do something productive

Hubs: "I had a dream about you last night", nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

Moi: "Oh yeah? I had a dream about Bradley Cooper."

Uproarious laughter.

Hubs: "Was he clothed?"

Moi: "Yes, fully."

Hubs: "How unfortunate for you."

I love my husband.

Mama, can you type in "www.horsedoctor.com" on the computer?

Why, have you played a game there?

No, I just want to see it.

Check it out. There's a beautiful xray of a human knee, as far as I can tell.

Maybe we should buy the domain.

I took the girlie to the Mall for my emergency purchase of new glasses. I needed an opinion, and who better to accompany me than a 5 year old fashion plate? Especially as I didn't have contact lenses to wear and I can only see clearly about 2 inches from my face without optical apparatus.

I short-listed a few, and it came down to Prada, Persol, and Ermenegildo Zegna.

The Persol were geeky chic, but too big for my face.


I put on the EZ pair:

To which the girl commented:

"You don't look like my mommy."

A gentleman standing next to me said, "Well, that isn't good."

I looked over at him with a smile. And then I recognized him. Guess who?

Dr. Joe. The Parenting and Life Counsellor, regular contributor to Cityline. Canada's answer to Dr. Phil, perhaps (I bet he gets that all the time, whether he likes it or not.)

Lest my daughter develop major psychological issues based on my choice of eyeglass frame, I think it was prudent that I went with Prada.

The big reveal will happen later this week.

Yeah for new specs! I'm making an appointment this week to replace the Dolce and Gabbana's that the husband threw away. I may have to check out the Prada selection!

Oh, be careful typing in unknown urls with your kids in the room. My coworker's daughters thought of one they thought was funny, which was totally innocent like 'elbow.com' or something (maybe not that, I don't remember it), and we typed it in, and it was porn, and about 20 pop ups came up and sound and everything...enough to get you fired at some places. Thankfully, we did it without his young daughters there. ACK!

Girl, I can't wait to see the new specs!

And that's too funny on Dr. Joe being right beside you :)

Wow, you can't go wrong with a real live TV doctor giving you his opinion. I wish I could take him and your daughter everywhere with me for fashion advice.

C said...

LOL! Oh, Karen! Your posts always make me smile! You and Ian are HILARIOUS!!!

Oh, and being in the presence of a TV doctor while looking for new glasses?! That is the coolest! I love Lil G's "You don't look like my Mommy"!!! Too cute!

Can't wait to see the new specs!!!

P.S. I was so tempted to click on the link, but was too scared. horsedoctor.com sounds way too suspicious to me! LOL! ;) j/k

When I first read that, I was wondering why you had the hots for Anderson Cooper! I need more caffeine.

How cool is that?! Can't wait to see the reveal :)

Tooje said...

Maybe that would be fun...to not look like "mommy" for a day. Or maybe that's just me. :)

I love that you took the girl along for fashion advice. My daughters are my best advisors.

If I told my husband I had a dream about another man, he would say something martyrish like "Oh, I guess I'm just not good enough anymore". Ha!

My daughter is a good person to have around for fashion advice too.
