Such An Unwelcome Guest

We don't have a guest room, so when someone comes to visit (which is pretty rare), they have to sleep on an air matress in the living room. And suffer a constant pestering by Gwenstopher.  And they really have no privacy.

Yesterday, I prepared for a guest named Sandy.   I cooked for her.  I bought groceries for her.   I even cleaned for her.  The one thing I did not do was get out the air matress.  I didn't want to encourage her to stay for any length of time.

And do you know what she did?

When she got here, she was a total whirlwind.  She stirred everything up.

She shut off the lights and made us eat in the dark.  She made us race through showers before the hot water ran out.

She blew leaves from one end of this place to the other.

And in some cases, though not at our house, she got water all over the place and made it hard to get around.

She was even so bold that she took it upon herself to cancel school for two days!

I'd say the only thing she did right was bring 60 degree weather which we don't have at this time of the year.


Don't let the door hit you on the way out, Sandy!

Linking up here.


  1. Ugh it's in the 30s/Low 40s here.

  2. Hi, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from Finding the Funny.

    Interesting take on Sandy! The only thing good I can say about her is that she drowned a couple rats in my barn. Even so, not sorry to see her go. Not sorry at all.

    Anyway, thanks for the laugh! I hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…
