Friday Funny

Last night at bedtime the normal chaos was reining. Kids running around instead of getting PJ's on, brushing teeth, I was probably on the computer instead of overseeing this process. Damon was upstairs and I headed up there to pitch in. I went into the kids bathroom and Megan was brushing her teeth and told me there was a spider in the bathroom. I was assuming it was a little one, but I guess it was more like the size of a quarter or something. That sounded very large to me. I casually asked Damon, "you got it, didn't you?" and he responded, well, it was on the door and blah blah blah, it moved quickly blah blah blah. I needed him to get to the part where he said he got it, but he did not. It snuck through a crack in between the cabinet and the floor molding. Nice. He quickly offered to go get the bug/spider spray that he sprays the exterior of the house with in the late summer. I quickly said yes, go get it and spray it into the crack. He came back upstairs with a water bottle and said he mixed up the last of it. He sprayed and that was that. I knew the stuff worked pretty well because we dont' get many inside in the late summer/early fall. So tonight he calls me on the way home and says he needs to swing by Home Depot and get more light bulbs and bug spray. He then told me that we've been out of the spray for a while. I'm confused. He then shared that he'd actually only sprayed water into the crack. Seriously. He said he knew I wouldn't be able to sleep at night if I knew there was a creepy crawly in the house and he wasn't in the mood to tear apart the cabinet. I didn't know what to say. He did have a point, but still....a fibb is a fibb! I've been duped!
