Bachelor Cranky


Bachelor Cranky

It is Saturday night and I have been a bachelor for four days now.  Mrs. Cranky has been working upstate since Wednesday, her dance studio employer is holding its annual ballroom dance competition…serious stuff if you are a ballroom dancer.

You may be wondering what I have been up to during my days as a carefree bachelor.  I was left with only one command, “Don’t forget to bring in the mail.”  Mrs. Cranky is serious about two things, taking in the mail every day, and answering every phone call.

Getting the mail has been easy, the phone I let go to the answering machine.  In the meantime, I stay up as late as I want and sleep in late every morning…actually I can do that all the time.  I am able to watch whatever TV I want, and practice my guitar for hours…actually I can do that when Mrs. Cranky is home.

In her absence, I got to play golf three days where ordinarily I would only have been able to play…actually I get to play golf pretty much whenever I want.

At dinner time, I have barbequed every night and have enjoyed an occasional cigar and a glass of wine while cooking.  OK, probably several glasses of wine.  Mrs. Cranky doesn’t like me to drink that often on account of that being a drunk thing.  I do get to smoke an occasional cigar and barbequing is nothing new.

So to recap, as "Bachelor Cranky" I have been able to do pretty much the same stuff I do when Mrs. Cranky is at home, except I have done them all without Mrs. Cranky hanging around.

I will be very glad when it is Sunday and Mrs. Cranky is back home.

This bachelor stuff is not all it is cranked up to be.

Stupid Headline Sunday has been delayed one day because this post would not make any sense if posted later in the week.

  2. Hubby rarely goes out of town, maybe once a year if that these days. I "cherish" those few days alone. The remote to myself, my schedule how I want to do things, make a meal, bring in a meal, whatever. I do miss him but it is good to have just a few days apart. Glad she'll be home so very soon!

  8. I figured you were doing what you do when she's home. You seem both very happy even though you try to convince us otherwise.

    I linked this post to Silly Sunday.

    Have a fabulous day and she's home today. Excellent. ☺

  15. Why do i get the feeling you'd rather have her around so you can argue on occasion?

  16. The last time my husband was out of town without me, I missed him a lot. Because I couldn't figure out how to turn on the damn TV and get it to where I wanted to go (the antenna, or Amazon Prime, or one of those many apps that let you stream stuff). It's so much easier to tell him to "go to that one place that shows German TV." Heh.

  17. That's the beauty of being with a good partner, we both do pretty much as we please most of the time. When there's work to be done, we pitch in to make it go quicker.
    Life is good down here in the sticks.

  18. My favorite thing to do when Mrs. Chatterbox is out of town is sleeping in our bed on a diagonal.

  19. I'm usually too tired to do much more than I do now when the Ms is here. I don't think she has anything to worry about.

  20. It is nice to just have someone else there. When they are away you realize how much you treasure having them there with you.

  21. Your mate's your mate for so many wonderful reasons. Safe travels, Mrs. Cranky!

  22. What? No dancing in your underwear and sliding across the floor in your socks? No sliding down the stairs on a piece of cardboard? Cranky, you disappoint.

  23. I tend to drink a lot of wine and eat pizza or popcorn for dinner when I'm alone.
