I’ve been working too hard. Found a skit from years ago. Decided to share a peek in our morning routine. Just enough truth to be funny I hope! 😀
ONETA/SAMMY – MORNING ROUTINE – LONG HAPPY MARRIAGE
Alarm clock goes off:
Sammy, before you go in there, let the dog out.
You can’t wait? Well, neither can he. Ok, I’ll let him out myself.
I go to the door with dog:
Get about your business and stay out of the Bakers’ yard.
Honey, do you know what the weather is going to be? Can you look in the paper? … Well, get it. ….Ok, I’ll get it myself….
….I can’t get the paper. It’s in the street. I wish the paper boy would throw it close by. I can’t go out there cause I’m not dressed yet. I want to shower first.
…..Would you call the dog. Well, he comes better if you call. You can whistle. …
Ok, I’ll do it.
Go to door:
“Whoot, whooooot” Sammy, I can’t whistle.
Here, puppy, puppy. Come, come.
Buttons, you dumb dog. You get in here.
I told you to stay out of the Baker’s yard! Go in our own yard!
Sees Mrs. Baker, waves
Hi, Mrs. Baker. Sorry about that.
Necessary ingredient for short happy marriages too!
I’m trying to turn to it more and more — more so than the opposite— as the opposite is simply a toxic mess
Oh, hilarious. And I second that. Many more happy years to you and Sammy.
Thanks. I did some of these skit things back when I was active in Toastmasters, Int. when I had to have speeches about every month. They were fun, but a long time ago.
Lol very true! 😂🤣😎
The need for patience will probably show up before the honeymoon is over. 😀
Reality of life and marriage. thank you for the entry. Patience indeed is needed even before the honeymoon is over. such is the way of all of us who are really very imperfect people. xx
I don’t know of a marriage with even one perfect person! 😀
I think I’ve read somewhere “good fences make great neighbors.” 😂🤣😂🤣 Hugs to you for your perfectly “constructed” marriage! ❤️
😀 😀 Thanks for reading in my blog today. Have a nice weekend. I’ve been gone all day so I won’t get much blogging done today.
That’s for sure patience is a virtue and treating each other with love and respect as the Bible mentions. Thank you for the skit
Thanks for sharing! It made me think of a passage I recently read,
in Genesis 2:24, when God united the first man and woman in marriage, there was no indication that the union would be only temporary. Adam and Eve were to be together for life.
As is said in the traditional wedding vow “til death do us part” and as vowed faithfully by both parties. That is how is should be. Thanks for the comment.
