Overheard: Please Let This Be An Innocent Three's Company Kind Of Misunderstanding

Was just in the backyard, hanging out with my only friend the dog when I heard this conversation over the fence, a couple doors down. These people are in their 50s or 60s and I see the husband almost everyday while walking Huck:


Woman: You told me we'd try.

 *I perk up and pause the ritual post-work scratching of Huck's chest. Huck is not amused.* 

Man: What? Now?

Woman: Don't be an idiot.

Man: Well, you're bringing it up now.

Woman: They say it's better to talk about things after the fact, when you're not in the heat of the moment.

Man: Heat of the moment? When was that?

Woman: I guess that's our problem. There's no heat, sir. No heat at all.

Man: Fine. FINE! This weekend, alright?

Woman: Good. I'll pick up Vaseline from the Costco.

What most struck me about this? "I'll pick up Vaseline from the Costco."

You know how BIG a tub a Vaseline from Costco is?? What in the WORLD would they do with that quantity of Vaseline? I mean, REALLY! What could two people (I hope) possibly do that would require that much Vaseline?

Can you re-direct the nanny cam, do you think?

I am annoyed that your break-up piece was funnier and better written than mine. Such jealousy is another reason why I could never date another blogger.wedding flowers
