Blushing my teef

Because my wife & I work in the same suburb, our morning commutes are on many of the same roads. Toni has to be at work at 8 am, I don't have to be in until 8:30. So I generally get in the shower just as she's walking out the door. Every morning she'll call before I've left telling me how bad the traffic is so I know whether to take the regular route or to take one of my alternate routes.

This morning she was in a particularly foul mood when she got up and stormed out the door. And the past 2 days she's happened to call while I was brushing my teeth. Yesterday I was smart enough to rinse before picking up the phone, this morning I was more tired and thus not quite as quick on my toes so I answered the phone with a mouth full of toothpaste.

With my speech slurred due to the toothpaste Toni asked, "Was I THAT bad this morning that I drove you to drink?" And she was finding it quite amusing...

"No, I'm blushing my teef right now. I've got toofpaste in my mouf."

"Did you find the Vodka?"

"Yeff, I thtopped uthing Lithertine and replathed it with Abtholut... oh and I don't thwith and thpit, I thwith and thwallow."

At that point she finally agreed to let me go because I was making her laugh a bit too hard while driving and I really wanted to finish "blushing my teef."

I guess ya had to be there...

As Johnny Carson usee to say, "funny stuff".

Lithertine is a very dangerous compound, Perplexio. It's often used as an explosive chemical by SWAT teams.

green eyes: We have mornings where we drive each other up the wall-- but don't all couples have those? It's the ability to laugh at those mornings when hindsight becomes 20/20 that makes it work.

bruce: Whereas Jay Leno would use the story to somehow find a way to take a not-so-subtle yet humorous jab at Kevin Eubanks.

Phoenix: In that case, it's ESPECIALLY good that I switched from "Lithterine" to "Abtholut"!
