Everything is Coming Up Dried Out Contact Lenses

When you shack up with your man, everything is so romantic all the time that you even get to pee on rose petals:OKAY! So it's not romance ALL the time. For example, the stomach bug claimed another victim at our house this week. So cleaning up puke at one in the morning wasn't so romantic. And it wasn't all that romantic when I brought home lice from preschool. Or the germs from hand, foot, and mouth disease. Or impetigo for that matter.

But none of us actually succumbed to the hand, foot and mouth OR the impetigo. We just hung out with the germs. And then the rose that I cut from the back yard and put in a little vase on the bathroom counter died.

So then, in a fit of romance, The-Guy threw the petals into the toilet. There's a dried up contact lens in there too. So that's like pretty much all romance all the time here at La Maison Twipply Skwood. Mostly.

Here's something else unique about Camp Twipply Skwood - our district representative is an aging soul, R&B, and gospel singer in disguise:It's particularly handy when you want to lobby and be entertained at the exact same time. I'm just kidding! Because I don't even know how to lobby. But I am totally going to check into live concerts.

Hurricane season is here again as I understand it. And lucky thing too! After all, the blue tarps are starting to disappear and the roofs are slowly but surely being repaired.

This place doesn't look like it's ready for the next hurricane just yet:
This place looks like it needed help long before Ike plowed through:Here's my boy, enjoying his summer in between doctor and dentist visits:And here's what I get when I try and photograph younger gal:Only when she feels that she's having a bad hair day though.

I got a few good shots of older gal too. And she provided me with some lesser known facts about diabetes. For instance, if you see a total stranger's boobs vibrating, this could be a telltale sign of diabetes. But more on that when I find out which, if any, of her pictures she's okay with me posting.

Come to think of it, perhaps if I extended that same courtesy to younger gal, I wouldn't get a photo of the hand so much of time...

Al Green? Sweet! Tell him that his stuff is great for me, okay?

My girlfriend works with elementary school kids and totally has worried about lice before. Haha I can't say that the thought of getting lice is too thrilling either!

ALF said...

Vibrating boobs? I will totally be on the lookout for that.

Maureen said...

Ew, what a week for you! I like the way your street signs are colored coordinated to the names... ;)

Kristine said...

I had lice in elementary school, I have ever since been very wary every time my scalp itches for any reason what-so-ever.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Derek - Will do! And hoping your girlfriend doesn't bring you any lice. Because, y'know, as romantic as those little buggers are, they tend toward overstaying their welcome.

Alf - Older gal's going to do a guest blog, so we'll get the whole scoop. :-)

Maureen - Wasn't that thoughtful of them to coordinate that way?

Kristine - Yeah, as soon as someone says the word "lice" at school, I stick my hair up on top of my head. Once I had a bad morning & no time to do my hair. I stuck my hair up in a clip & the moment my coteacher walked in she asked, "Are there lice?!?!?!?"

Arizaphale said...

Hah ha! I told you about the scabies too didn't I?
As for peeing on rose petals. Very cool. Around here with all these boys, you are often peeing on pee,and that's the stuff that ain't on the floor. I hope you teach your boy to aim.
Looking forward to the guest post.

Christine said...

Well, that explains why people look at my chest...

DJ Kirkby said...

Boobs vibrating = diabetes? How? Is it in relation to total fat content etc? Tell me more please.

Kerry McKibbins said...

Love the rose petals/ contact lense pic. Love it.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Arizaphale - You didn't tell me about the scabies but I HATE HATE HATE scabies! My nephews brought that over once. They got it because their MOM'S a teacher. Scabies is even WORSE than lice! ICK ICK ICK!!!!!!!

Christine - Yeah. I'm sure that must be it...

DJ Kirkby - Older gal has offered a guest post and I don't want to ruin her surprise. :-) Soon to come though!

Thanks Kerry!

I am actually surprised that house survived the hurricane.

Talk to the hand or my mom is what she seems to be saying

A Free Man said...

I think more blog posts should include photos of the author's toilets!

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

SJ - According to the drunk I talked to outside while taking the picture, that particular building has survived many a hurricane!

A Free Man - Shouldn't they though? :-) :-) :-)

Ricardo said...

Al green is near you? WOW! LOL!

There are still messed up places from the last hurricane!?!? WHAT!?!?! Not good.

Despite the illness that has run amok, people seem happy in the pictures.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

Ricardo - I don't know this from personal experience bec. we didn't buy one of those boxes that lets you see TV, so we don't have TV now BUT my friend told me tonight that they're doing all these TV specials about reliving the hurricane. And I'm like, "Why do we have to RE-live it?!?!? We're still living it!"
