A Kitchen Haunting


Picture it- A lazy Sunday morning. 

While preparing a cuppa tea the American way; a tea bag in a cup of water nuked in the microwave-I pop open the microwave door where there is approximately 10 slices of bacon just hanging out. Cold, congealed and in there for who knows how long.

The day before, my hubby, Ed,was complaining about a missing pack of ready cooked bacon from the fridge. Yes, he counts his bacon packs. What can I say?  Now unless I'm making a meal with bacon, I don't just make bacon. 

Anyway, I remember our conversation and toss the slices back in the microwave after nuking my tea. Maybe he'll recall making them one night this past week for his lunch. He's been taking BLT's 

So, I show him...

Me: Ed, there's bacon in the microwave. Remember when you were looking for the lost bacon? Well, there it is. It must have been in there a few days.

Ed: (looks in microwave) Where'd this come from? Why is it in here?

Me: I don't know. Maybe you made it Friday night while we were drinking and you forgot about it?

Ed: No. I'd remember. 

Me: Not if you were drunk.

Ed: I didn't put it in here. Maybe it was you?

Me: (getting disgusted) No. I don't eat the bacon unless I'm cooking with it. And, unlike you, I remember making food Friday night when we were drinking. I air fried mac n cheese bites. Not bacon.

Ed: Well, it wasn't me. 

Me: So...we have a ghost that visits us just to make your bacon, but doesn't eat any?

Ed: Ghosts don't eat.

Me: That's what you got out of that? Okay, so what your saying is the most reasonable explanation, isn't that you might have forgotten you made it, no. You think it's a ghost.

Ed: Yep, ghost bacon. Maybe they just like the way it smells?

Me: Ghost. Bacon.

Husbands....Why?

Soooo...my husband's phone rings while he's in the shower. I notice someone left a message. It was his place of employment.  When he gets out of the shower, I tell him he got a call from his work and they left a message.  

His answer....."Where?"

I give him the 'head tilt a dog gives' when something is said and isn't understood. I tell him, "It's on the kitchen window written in blood."

"Where?" Good Lord man. Is there another place someone calls and leaves messages?


This is a pix when I didn't want to strangle him....

My First Pet

When I was a kid, my folks wouldn't allow me to have a pet. One day, I was playing around the community dumpster, and found this sad abused little bird. I snuck it home in a little bucket and cared for him.

So I snuck into my parents bedroom and snatched the Saturday night dog collar and leash out of my Dad's underwear drawer. I wanted to take my new pet for a walk around the block. Yeah, I knew you couldn't take birds for a walk but I was young and excited for a pet. 

I named it Oleg. He was my first pet. 

Until my parents found out about him. 

And ate him. 

Why couldn't they just tell me he went to live at a farm somewhere???

I dug this pix out of my old scrapbook.

I miss you Oleg....
