How to: Domestic Squabble

‘Did you do the dishes?’ — ‘Your bed is still unmade!’ — ‘Clean. Up. Your. ROOM!’

Always think before you speak. One…Two…Three…Ten.  Deep Breath. Great! Now go ahead and shout her head off its hinges!

This week, over at the Trifecta club, we’re handing out advice like chocolate samples at an ‘All-you-can-eat’ food fair.  My entry is over at the top of this post.  You like it? Huh? Huh? Well, since advice is free, here’s another one for you all:

Never say how long it’s been since your car tires went flat; in fact do not mention your car tires at all, treat them as an invisible, indispensable entity.  They’re sensitive creatures…I know.

And with those exact 33 words plucked off the tree of experience, I’ll wrap this up for the week.  Nice weekend!

    Sounds like my house…after several nice requests, it gets loud around here.

    I’m not quite sure which one is the better advice! Better listen to both just to be sure.

  5. Heads have hinges now–that’s a new one! I like it!
    The tire part is too true. The number of times I’ve lost a tire…

    Thanks for linking up!

  6. Hilarious! I love the way you always weave a little tale in introducing your piece on the prompts, they are just as entertaining!

    Ha! Sounds like Saturday morning chore time at my house… Great take on the prompt! And the tire advice is brilliant too, though I fear just having read your post might lead to dire consequences for my tires!

    Am not mentioning those round things that allow the car to move. jinxjinxjinx
    Nor am I bothering with the shouting. I’m going to take that advice.

  9. I find I’m very good at counting to ten when I don’t really need to. But the times when I probably should? It’s the last thing on my mind. Great advice.

    I relate to the one with the kids, though my kids were pretty good most of the time. The tire advice is great too. Nice entries.
