Making Up Stuff

Last night Joe and I were in the bathroom getting ready for bed. There is this light over the shower that went out.

I reassured him that it had a motion detector and went out when there wasn't much movement in the bathroom.

Joe gives me a funny look but I reassure him of the accuracy of my assessment. Then he questions me, "Have you always thought that there was a motion sensor in our bathroom?" "Well, yeah, why else would it periodically go on and off. Usually if I move around enough, it will come back on."

Long silence.

"Babe, there is no motion sensor. It is a can light and they turn off when they get too hot so they don't catch on fire." He starts to chuckle.

He continues his questioning, "So did you ever question if you were right or if there really was a motion sensor."

Me- "No."

Joe- "Well shoot, that throw out that theory. I was thinking if you were ever teaching Isaac something and you just weren't sure about it, you could run it by me first." :)

Laura told me on many occasions, "If you don't know something, you can't just make it up."

I don't know about yall, but they always told us if you didn't know something then make an "educated guess." I passed many college written exams with a long "educated guess."

Trouble. My child is in lots of trouble.

H*I*L*A*R*I*O*U*S!!! I made my husband go up to the attic and manuever our can light so it would take extra long before it shuts off. It was just too annoying!!!

That is one of the funniest things I've ever read. I can just imagine Joe's face. This is one of the reasons why he loves you so. Just keep him on his toes.
