now who's the alpha dog???

I returned from my lunch and went to check my cell phone. There on the display were three missed calls from Craig all within a minute of one another, but no voicemail. I began to panic and scary thoughts ran through my head... Were the dogs hurt? Did the SWAT team take over our home as a command center? Have we been robbed? WHAT????

After my second attempt at getting Craig on the phone he finally answers. "Honey, you called three times...is everything alright; are the dogs alright?" My pulse began to race. After a pregnant pause he says, "I was in a rush to make my appointment on time and I broke your Q-Tip holder in the bathroom." Now I had the pregnant pause... Was he kidding? I resisted the impulse to laugh because he seemed sincerely apologetic and something else...was it fear? I guess my pause was longer than I thought because he blurts out, "I'll buy you a new one!" Now I really had to laugh. Finally I let him off the hook; "Don't worry, I'm not upset, but that set cannot be replaced; it's been discontinuted. So, I'll just get a new one." I swore that I heard a sigh of relief from his side of the phone.

After I hung up, I immediately went on the internet to scope out the new bathroom set that Craig is buying.

You go through that many Q-tips? I didn't even know they made a holder.....

TK-Yes...fear the ultimate attraction and relationship builder.

Buffalo-and that's WHY he was scared; women's attachment to things that you don't even know exist...

If nothing else, I'm impressed by your seemingly encyclopedic knowledge of bathroom sets.

Hold on...we're not supposed to be afraid when we do things like that?

at least he didnt tear your panties while he was trying them on...LOL

Joe-his fear was warranted and should be felt when these things occur. And, don't get me started on bathroom sets; it's a very complex thing.

Doggy-we once had a "sequins found on underwear" issue, but that's a whole other post. :)

You lost me at Pregnant hold. I thought you were going to say you were pregnant and then I re-read Q-tip holder. What a good man to call you and buy a new one. You are so funny!!!!
