Maya got her braces today. But don’t worry, this isn’t a post about that!

(This also isn’t a post about the fact that I could buy a first class around-the-world ticket for the price of Maya’s braces. I’ll save that for another day.)


A trip to Toronto….pre-braces but smack in the middle of my fractured foot.

No, this post highlights the text exchange that occurred between my husband and I, while he was at Maya’s appointment.

Ali: “The orthodontist asked me to wait outside.”

Me: “Maybe you’re making him nervous?”

Ali: “No way. I only focus my energy to agitate you and nobody else.”

Me: “Well at least you give it your all.”

Ali: “Absolutely. This is the one thing I don’t half ass.”


I hobbled with my broken foot to take this picture near the CN Tower. Just couldn’t find the energy to go any further.

The takeaway: My husband admittedly have asses everything except when it comes to agitating me. At which point he gives 110%.

So while this isn’t the most interesting thing that’s happened since my last post over a month ago (Highlights – a broken foot, a trip to Toronto, Maya and Ali buying a pull up mechanism that attractively hangs over the door frame) it certainly is the most enlightening.

And probably the most hilarious.

      Apparently recovery is long…but it’s not getting worse so that’s good I guess?

    This exchange was hilarious. At least Ali admits it!

      Admitting the problem is the first step, right?

      Thank you J! 🙂

    If you and your spouse don’t piss each other at some point throughout the day, you’re doing it wrong. #marriagetruths
    But seriously, I literally laughed out loud at my desk reading this because I can completely relate it back to me and REB. Since I’ve now laughed out loud (LITERALLY), my coworkers know I’ve shied away from my work for a few minutes, because nothing about my actual work is hilarious. I blame you and your hilarity, but I also adore you and thank you. Catch-22 😉 ❤
