My husband called me the other day with big news.
"I know what to get the boys for valentines day!"
(I didn't realize we got them valentines presents, because
I thought it was sort of all about ME on valentines, but this year....is different.)
"Okay," I said, "What can we get them?"
I mean seriously? Raccoon traps. Why? I ask, why?
"So they can catch raccoons." He responded.
(I think I heard the word "duh!" in his voice somewhere).
Okay, so we will get our 3 boys raccoon traps for valentines day and
I'm sure that they will be thrilled beyond belief. (I do mean that seriously.)
It reminds me of a phrase my sweet Nona used to say in her thick Italian accent when nothing made sense to her..."but watcha can you do? but watcha can you do?"
