Mr Him Flops all over the bedroom
Last week Mr Him had plans, inadquate plans but plans none the less. Once I found out his plans I completed them for him, I made them well rounded and ensured that there were no gaps, no weakness! I have a knack for rearranging his plans, so he tells me regularly which reassures me that its appreciated. I have found from experience that his plans lack a certain je ne sais quoi, lets call it refinement.
The need for me to put the finishing touches to his plan this time was that he declared to me that he had booked himself a weeks annual leave to veg' at home, without me. Just 'flop' were his words. Now at this time of year dear reader,
we, he, we decorate, at least one room. Its like the San Francisco bridge, never done. He knows this. He, we have decorated a room or two around Easter time for the last
3 years. So realising that he had made an error in his plan I simply told him that we would just need to tweek a word's meaning rather than redraw the complete plan. So to his benefit the word flop became synonymous with paint our
bedroom. A simple modification that made his plan a more rounded one, don't you agree! I must admit it was admirable
how well he adapted to this more wholesome meaning of flop so it was clearly his intention all along but he didn't quite know how to put it into words. Thank goodness he has me.
For the four work days last week he flopped on the ceiling, he flopped on the skirting boards, he flopped on the walls and flopped on the windowsill. There was not a surface in our room that he did not flop on. He can honestly go to work tomorrow saying that well and truly flopped during his vacation.
To keep him company I booked a decorator to flop with him. The decorator was to flop on the walls of our sixteen year olds old bedroom. She’s moving to a bigger room and I am using her old room as a guest room and base for the young on line shopping genius. The decorator flopped on the walls in Ditzy flowers in pink.
The sixteen year old has now decided she needs to flop. She will flop in her new room. She has chosen a feature wall in paper and the remaining walls in cream paint. I think she will be flopping for weeks, but nothing new there.
I have to say the Mr Him has been so taken with flopping that he went on to power hose the patio on Saturday which put a smile on its face.
The finished result.
What did Mr Him wear to flop.
Yes, shorts, this is his form of payback.
