Today I have a tale to tell you. So TS Hanna came on Saturday and dropped lots of rain. The Woman napped all day long- lazy wench. Anyhow she eventually got out of bed and convinced the Awesome Man it was a good idea to go to Ikea. Right in the middle of the storm. So off they went over the Delaware River and into Philly. They were properly soaked and then bought a dresser, wall hanging, and two new lamps.
The Woman had to drive home because our metal machine with wheels is too hard for the Awesome Man to drive if the back seats are down. His legs are really long. So the Woman doesn't really ever drive in Philly. She's not a city driver. She made her way back over the river and got on the major road near our house. Only to find it was a river. The Pennsauken public works department did a bang up job and clogged the storm drain. So the Woman panicked of course as the Awesome Man coached her on driving through the water (it was almost over the wheels). The person behind her got stuck but the Woman did steer the machine through just fine. (The Awesome Man says the trick is to keep the "revs" high so the engine is working). Don't worry, a nice hunk of the bottom of the car is now hanging off.
Then they came back and started to build the Ikea project. Yeah...typical Ikea fashion one of the pieces was wrong. It was drilled on the wrong side so they had to give up and go back the next day. Where they spent an hour in line waiting but they did get a new part! So they put the think together only to find out (in true Ikea fashion) its rickety. Too rickety to hold the sleeping room TV. This made the AM mad but the Woman didn't care. So they left everything half done and the old dresser in the middle of the room. The Woman says she's never starting another project ever again because its not worth it.
Me? Oh I napped. And chased Kaze. And stole Latte's birthday nip.
