Tonight we were driving home from somewhere. I noticed that the road had grooves in it. Being the highly observant person that I am, I had driven on it several times but never noticed it before now.
So I asked my husband, "Why does the road have grooves in it?"
Hubby, who would rather have his teeth pulled out with pliers than talk while driving, replied, "They grind it down, then they repave it."
Now, rest assured that I know as much about cars, trucks, and building roads as I do about building a nuclear reactor.
Again, I stated "So why does it look like that?"
Hubby again patiently repeated "They grind it down, then they repave it." Because after all, if I didn't get it the first time, I will certainly get it if he repeats it again. In exactly the same way. Word for word. What is he, Mr. Instant Replay?
So, I said to him, "Look. Ask me something about my uterus and I will tell you about it. Otherwise, tell me again."
This earned me a smile. Then he explained that they were redoing the roads and were going to repave them.
Since I thought they were already finished with the roads the light finally dawned and I "got" it.
Anytime you want to know about building a road, go talk to my husband. If you want to know about a uterus.....go talk to your doctor. I lied, I can't tell you. And I can't believe I typed the word uterus on my blog. Three times. I may never recover.
