So this weekend, Sir Streusel and I were out and a song came on the radio.
I said, “I like that song. It makes me want to get my groove on.”
Sir Streusel responds, “I like it too. It’s snazzy!”
I respond, “Snazzy?”
Sir Streusel, “Yes, snazzy.”
I said, “You do know you just dated yourself, like, really dated yourself.”
Sir Streusel, “Your hair looks really pretty today. Let’s forget I said ‘snazzy’.”
We have had glorious weather this week! Windows open, doors open and the girls having a ball playing outside.
Sir Streusel travels during the week and gets so tired of the same breakfast buffets in the hotels. I like to put breakfast treats in his suitcase to help him with his breakfast “ho-hums”. One of his favorite muffins is the Raisin Bran Muffin.
It is a hearty muffin that will ‘stick to your ribs’ as my daddy would say. Eric’s mom use to bake these muffins for him. She would bring them over in a ziplock bag to put in the freezer. I do the same thing. They freeze beautifully. I pack him a few in his suitcase to jazz up his hotel breakfast. You know you have a good man when a little muffin with raisins in it makes him happy. You also know you have a good man when he uses the word ‘snazzy’ and you laugh at him and he laughs right back. That is one of the many things I love about him. We laugh, we laugh a lot, we laugh at stupid stuff, we laugh at ourselves, we laugh at each other, and we laugh with each other.
