Oh, The Horror!

I discovered something today...and it was not good, People.  Not good at all.

We park our cars in the detached garage behind our house, so I hardly ever see the front of our house.  Today when I arrived home after shopping, I parked my car on the street out in front of our house to unload the groceries because it's easier to carry them to the front door.  I popped the trunk open and turned off the car.  I looked up at the house and saw Rich opening the front door to come down and help me take the groceries in.  But then, to my horror and utter disbelief, I saw something that I will never be able to live down.

Christmas. Lights.

On MY bushes.


We still have Christmas lights on our bushes in April, People!  {GASP}  I shuddered at the thought.  I promptly got out of the car and accosted my dear husband. 

What is the meaning of this?  We have Christmas lights on our bushes!  Why?!?  How can I possibly mock people who keep their Christmas trees displayed until Valentine's Day, when we clearly have Christmas lights on our bushes in April?!?  I can no longer mock because now I am one of "them". 

So I went in the house and started putting groceries away, thinking about this travesty that has befallen me.  Then Rich said, I'm going to take those lights down right now.  I answered him, Oh no you're not.  I have to take a picture.  To which he said, Uh-uuuh!  And I replied, Yes, I am.  I am soooo blogging about this, mister!  And out the door he went to take down those stupid lights.

Well, who needs a picture anyways?


  1. In my defense I was making up for the fact that we haven’t had Christmas decorations up for the last few years, yeah that’s it, sounds like a good reason to me!

  2. That's too funny!!! Glad you two got that taken care of! :)

  3. That is the most hilarious thing I've ever read!
