She did it again
She did it again
I just went downstairs for a late-night snack of some cinnamon sugar-coated pecans Mrs. C had ordered from the internet. These things are sooo good I can’t tell you. I only eat a few at a time but they make a great late-night snack.
Hmm, they didn’t seem to be in the usual place. I checked under all the towels, and still nothing. Disappointed, I just grabbed a slice of Velveeta, a cheese like product, and came back upstairs.
“Don’t give me what, you know what you did.”
“I have no idea.”
“Please! I know that you know what you did!”
I’m no fool, I know this trick. Never admit to anything until you are sure that the jig is up. I know because sometimes she will accuse me of something with that “You know what you did” simply as a covert means of eliciting an admission of something that she had not actually uncovered. I’ve been tripped up a few times too and admitted to something she had no idea. It is a clever subversion that she thought I might be attempting on her. Thus, the quizzical response.
“You hid those pecan things!”
“Yes, and you found them I can tell you were chomping on something. You are going to finish the whole bag.”
“Well Hell, you only eat like one at a time, and you eat in little baby bites. You make a sugar-coated pecan nut last a day.”
“So, I have to hide them so I have one if I want it.”
“I’d save you a few, and I didn’t find them, I just had a piece of cheese!”
“Good, you’ve had your share.”
Three months from now those nuts will turn up someplace untouched from when squirrel lady hid them.
