A purple zebra would also be acceptable

"I want a blue giraffe for our anniversary," Helen said. "And he should speak Gaelic."

"But that's impossible," Mark protested. "There's no such thing."

"In that case, I want you to cook dinner, vacuum the carpet, and pick up all your dirty underwear every day."

Mark sighed.
"I'll go talk to the zookeeper tomorrow afternoon."

Pick up the dirty underwear?
You are WAY too demanding!
But it does make for an interesting and creative 55.
Thanks Janna for this witty little Gem.
You are like a tall ice cold glass of Brisk Lipton's tea, on a 90 degree muggy Michigan day!

That's about right. I swear my dh is allergic to the vacuum. He acts like touching it is traumatic.

That was a tall order. But if he can't find the one she wants, I've heard there are plenty that can speak French.

VE said...

Ha! I never fall for those kind of tricks...

He can talk to the zookeeper till HE is blue in the face, she has outwitted him yet again.

Brian: If I'm going to be shooting pigs, that means there's the possibility of bacon, which means it couldn't possibly be hell.

StanSki: I wonder! :)

G-Man: LOL. Don't worry; I'm single, and the only dirty underwear I pick up is my own. :)

Whall: Surprisingly to most males, Helen is completely reasonable about the order in which it's done.

MonkeyMan; LOL! Yes, I agree. Dude needs to step up. :)

John's Comments: Dreams are good! Well, sometimes....

LizzyAndElle: Are here I was sure you'd take the part about the giraffe or the zebra, but no, you surprised me. :o

AliceAudrey: I wonder if there's medication for that sort of thing...

TheThirteenthCrossing: I dunno if it's the best ever, but thank you! Thanks for visiting. :)

VodkaLogic: It's amazing more bachelors don't live in garbage dumps...

LuldaCasadaga: Thank you! Currently the only underwear of the floor is my own. :)

PattiKen: If only the French ones wouldn't tease me about my accent...

VE: Tsk, tsk, tsk...

Grace: Hee hee!

Spam guy who I deleted: Quit that.

Marla said...

Janna said...

Marla: The more I think about this, the more I really would love having a purple zebra and a blue giraffe.
