The scene is my kitchen fairly early in the day. I’m standing at the counter putting away some dishes in the cupboard. Devoted Spouse is at the sink working on something that I can only barely see in my peripheral vision but I hear funny noises….
Devoted Spouse: screech, screech, squeak, scrape, screech. “Wow! That really DOES work. ”
Me: Looks over and sees a man and one of his many penknives. What is odd about this scene? He is scraping this penknife against the ceramic bottom edge of a coffee cup. He’s honing his knife on my coffee cup….MY VINTAGE FIESTAWARE COFFEE CUP…GASP!
Devoted Spouse: screech, screech, “Cool.”
Me: “ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FREAKIN’ MIND…DO YOU HAVE A DEATH WISH??????””
Devoted Spouse: “what?…”
Grabbing the coffee cup from his hands I realized he is spending entirely too much time on those strange online survival forums and chat rooms. Now I have to lock up my china…sigh…
