Earlier this week, I woke up at 5:30 ready to start my day. I stretched, said a quick prayer, and stepped into the bathroom to brush my teeth.
Everything was absolutely fine…until, out of the corner of my eye, I saw something move. A creepy crawly bug. My worst nightmare.
So, I quickly grabbed some tissue and went to capture the stupid thing. I wasn’t quick enough because it escaped under our scale. I then thought to myself, “Shit. Now what?” So I moved the scale with my foot, and sure enough, the little guy scurried out. At this point, I knew I was wasting time. Chances were it would escape again.
So I did what anyone in my shoes would do, I grabbed a bottle of Vishnu’s shaving cream and placed it on top of the bug. And left it there for Vishnu to deal with.
It occurred to me that sleepy Vishnu would wake up, stumble into the bathroom, and knock over the bottle. And this would mean that there would still be a bug in our bathroom. So I texted my husband to warm him.
Most Thoughtful Wife of the Year. Right?!
And sure enough, when I came back, the bottle of shaving cream was on the counter and the bug was nowhere to be found.
I explained to Vishnu what happened hoping to make him laugh.
But no. I got an eye roll and an “Ok, Par.” Although, I have a strong suspicion that when I turned my back, he smiled.
Anyway, like I said…Most Thoughtful Wife of the Year.
