Will we ever be able to marry her off?

My husband and I were sitting on the front porch, comfortably reading our books, when Aisling came out to join us.

"Hello," she said, sitting down on one of the little bistro chairs that I bought as part of a set at a little antiques-and-collectibles store, but that's another story.

"Hello," said my husband and then sat there looking at her quizzically. "Aisling," he finally said, "you have something on your neck, kind of under your chin."

"Oh, that's probably just cheese," she said disinterestedly, not raising her eyes from her book.

This is what you get from the kind of girl who would walk through a crowded dog park from one gate to the other and get to your house, commenting "Gosh, my shoes smell funny" right before stepping onto your white living room carpet.

You've got me laughing again. :)
This reminds me of when my brother and I were in middle school. He'd SLURP his cereal in such a disgusting way, and then have milk just dropping from his chin back into his bowl. He would NOT wipe his mouth! I'd say he had something there, and he'd tell me "I want it there!" Ah! The annoyance of brothers. ;)

I guess you might expect that a little more from a boy though, huh?

I love you blog, by the way.

Hey, I snorted chicken noodle soup out of my nose on a dinner break at my first job with a bunch of people, including my then co-worker John, in attendance. Noodles out the nose didn't keep John and me from getting hitched, so Aisling has a fighting chance (just make sure her "suitors" like cheese). Oh yeah, and dogs.
