I got myself sort of challenged to a post so be careful what you ask for I say, because I am usually up for a challenge especially if it is an easy one, and also one that pokes fun at a couple we love dearly.
Bob and Martha, you all remember Bob and Martha the “Family” we spend each and every Saturday night with either solving the worlds problems, discussing genealogy and the wonders of how our families actually made it to America, the proper way to remove pesky varmints from under the house, or eating supper with, Martha makes a fabulous Chicken meal that I can never remember the name of but always love the idea of sitting down and having a heaping helping of the dish that everyone remembers the name of except for yours truly, now I am wondering about those pesky varmints but not really.
I did mention that we spend each and every Saturday night with them didn’t I, well I’ll have to clarify that statement with the fact that sometimes things come up like we had to go to New Mexico for the birth of our Grandson and missed out on a couple Saturday nights, but as soon as we got back we did go over and spend Saturday night with Bob and Martha, I think this would be a legitimate reason for not going over, and not one that just came up as we were getting ready to leave for the evening, but I suppose I could have hitched a ride on a puddle jumper plane to get me to the airport and then flew into California if Martha could have picked us up at the airport and made the Chicken dinner with a name I can’t recall, but no that option was never brought up, we were excused and held up our end of the deal by bringing baby pictures to share as soon as we got home.
Now it has been several weeks since we have seen Bob and Martha, Martha always has plans on Saturday night now and I am feeling a bit left out. Family Birthdays, Out of town Family visitors, Washing the dog, or going up the hill because you heard they had apples are not necessarily excuses I buy for not having us over to your house on Saturday night.
Cindy and Martha were talking on the phone last night and when Cindy mentioned us coming over, the excuse was another Family gathering that we just didn’t seem to fit into so guess what? We were not invited, heck I even took the test and got a higher score to prove that I fit into the family but my test scores were just not good enough, come on Martha if you do some studying then maybe you can score as well as I did even though you are already “Family” and are not actually required to test so you can be accepted, you act like that official test was no more than a joke.
When I questioned why it had been so long since we had got together Martha threw out that I should spend my time Saturday writing a blog about how Bob and Martha had Dissed us, so there it was the actual admission that we are being dissed and the challenge so to say to see if I would write about it. Maybe next Saturday everything will fall into line and we will get a chance to see Bob and Martha because I know how hard it is to keep family obligations and evidently how easy it is to diss Jimmy and Cindy, and until then--Poof ...
