Mrs. Fab is always thinking of others...

We had so much garbage left over from the party a couple of weeks ago that I couldn't fit it all in our regular can. And I forgot to get some yellow city bags for the overflow, so I had two cans of garbage fermenting over the past week. We finally did pick some up on Monday so I could bag it up for collection. There was a sense of urgency, you see, as maggots had taken over the two auxiliary cans.

After purchasing the bags:

Me: I'll take care of this when we get home.
Mrs. Fab: Good!
Me: You know, you could help me if you wanted.
Mrs. Fab: Why would I do that?
Me: It would be a nice thing to do.
Mrs. Fab: If I helped, I would end up vomiting and just making more food for the maggots to eat.
Me: (pause) I think that would be a nice gesture.

I cant believe I am saying this but the maggots have to eat too.

I think Mrs. Fab should give moral support. From a distance. In a lawn chair. With an umbrella drink.

Or maybe that is just entertainment value.

I think that you know where I would be, being a princess and all. I would be NOWHERE near the maggoty garbage can. I would be in the house reading or watching TV or taking a luxurious bath.

well it does make sense... one time, my dad, who works for a town doing allt eh stupid things, like garbage pick up, was picking up the trash on a beautiful summer day, but the bag opened up and he had maggots crawling ALL over him, he came home and showered and did not make us have them for supper

I can handle the maggots in the trash can but what I could not handle would be the puking. If I was there and Mrs. Fab puked then I would puke then the maggots would have a feast!!

Maggots? I guess we have all had garbage cans inahbited at one time or another. But much like Mrs. Fab, the clean-up would be the Mister's job, to keep from creating more of a mess.

*shudder*

Mrs. Fab is always so kind. She was only thinking about you because if she vomited you would have to clean it up. What a cool wife you have there Mr. Fab.
