OH NO!! He's done it once again, and says it's no big deal!
I just found out......she is on her way!! His snobby Aunt Adele!
It slipped his mind, her phone call came,.... a call he forgot to share!
The morning paper’s everywhere, and breakfast dishes are here and there
His feet up in the easy chair, my husband in his underwear
"Don't fuss", he says, so nonchalantly,.......... (I think I'm going to kill him!!!!)
I run in circles around room and to stash away the clutter
“Help me quick. Get off your rear!!” I scream while he just mutters
A headless chicken, is who I am! He stands there in a quandary,
He yawns a bit, then scratches head, while I hide dirty laundry!
Running to the bedroom, I'm gasping for a breath
“You’ve got to get your shirt on!…For Pete’s sake, dear! Find your pants!”
"Cripes all mighty! We must hurry! We’ve got to make the bed!”
I brush my hair, a dab of rouge...I paste a phony smile
I hear him greet her at the door with......"So good of you to call!!
"Stay the night........it's quite all right........we have an extra bed !!"
I smile with dread.........One look at him......(Tomorrow he'll be DEAD !!)
Just for fun........thankfully he has no Aunt Adele! :)!!!
