Blogging about my wife's mistake when I should be doing the dishes.*

Great news! My wife threw my underpants in the trash, but thankfully I pulled them out and plan on using them soon.

No, not my underpants. My Underpants. As in, my ticket to see Steve Martin's adaptation of an old play entitled The Underpants. As I lifted the garbage sack up and was about to tie it and take it out to the dumpster the other night, I glanced downward and saw the envelope addressed to me pressed against the thinly stretched white plastic. My wife told me later that when she looked at it, she thought it was just a mailer soliciting a subscription or something. Nope. It's the ticket I was expecting for the play I like by the writer I love. Thank goodness I noticed it.

*Then again, maybe she threw it away on purpose because I'm the kind of guy who sits here and publicly blogs about her when I should be doing the dishes?

I cleaned out my purse this week, then wondered about the side effects of an antibiotic I'd been prescribed. Went back to dig the paperwork out of the garbage, and found $100 check to TFT stuck in the Rx papers.

Man, I'll bet you totally thought I blew you off! I came in to work on a sick day to mail that sumbitch. I'm glad you found it. is running a 2 for 1 special if you use the code word "bloomers" in case you need extra tickets.
