There are a lot of invisible NOs as well.

November 7th, 2012 | by TJ |

I came home from my hair appointment tonight pretty late, and my head is stinky yet adorable, and I don’t have a headache, and moves were made before I left that lead me to believe that certain intentions were understood to be in the air on both sides, and when I came home and made to make good on said intentions, it turned out that SOMEONE just wanted to GO TO SLEEP.

While I believe that digging through your archives when you are in a BAD MOOD because you are leaving FOR A MONTH in less than 48 hours and you thought that there was a mutual understanding to do the business and it turns out no one is going to do the business goes against the spirit of NaBloPoMo, I think it’s PERFECTLY KOSHER to look through all of your draft posts and find an UNPUBLISHED post that just so happens to be conveniently about not doing the business, and post that.

Look, it’s November. Not only can they not all be winners, none of them are going to be winners.


Phil kept making gross sounds with his beer bottle. You’re going to have to trust me when I tell you it was super gross and frankly, quite egregious. I told him. I SAID, if you don’t stop doing that, I’m not going to do the business with you. And he wouldn’t stop. So I said, for every time you do that is one more day that I will not do the business with you. And he wouldn’t stop.

And that, students, is how The Great Sharpie Battle of 2011 began.

    Ha! Do you get the “Why didn’t you just wake me up?” Sometimes I don’t think my husband realizes how grumpy he is when he first wakes up. That is not my idea of pre-business-business.

    Also, the calendar reminds me of when I was little and CONSTANTLY fighting with my younger brother. I once decided to mark on the calendar any time he did something to offend me: call me a name, hit me, kick me, etc. (He’s 7 years YOUNGER than me, btw). My mom almost threw out the calendar because of all the marks. Heh.

    Think maybe you’ve Stockholmed him into thinking that getting sleep-punched is just as good as the business.

    I’m looking forward to reading all the comments on this!

    Also, I love that “Dad’s Birthday” is a big NO.
