I Love the Smell of Diesel Fuel in the Morning

I have a top-secret tip for those of you wishing your husband would complete a project that he started eons ago; plan to host a group of friends at your house, let him know in advance and then sit back and see what happens.

Really, this works; just this morning I awoke to the thunderous sound of a back-hoe in the driveway and, as I left for work this morning, my front driveway was being prepped for concrete....three years after I was promised a paved driveway.

I host my Bunco club tonight. The driveway and sidewalk leading to my front door will be wet cement.

My husband has known about this party for the past month. He is a genius of MENSA proportions and, he has excellent timing in case any of you ever questioned it.

I am tempted to take a skillet to his head.

On the other hand, this time next week, I will have a fully-cemented driveway..... on which my son can smash his skull while skate-boarding.

Clearly, now is not the time to drop the Aflack coverage.
