Friday Math Quiz

Pencils out!

Please answer the following, and show your work:

One child that you thought was better
+ Hot dogs for dinner
+ Long looped carpet
+ 4:30 am
= ?

Got it?

How about now?

The correct answer is: Me, with PTSD caused by having to clean chunky hot dog vomit out of a deep carpet. And the smell. Oh, the unholy smell.

We will never have hot dogs again. Ever.

And I'm also irrationally angry at Will because he can sleep through it. Liam was crying and puking. I was retching because of the smell. All the lights were on. I started a load of blankets in the washing machine. Amelia woke up to see what was going on, as did Ben.
Not Will. He just kept on sleeping...

If you need a pick-me-up after that unpleasant mental image, take a look at this. It cracked me up. It's an actual vintage ad. Click it to make it larger.


  1. I'd rather solve for x, and I HATE math. :)

    Aw, sorry your morning/night was so rough. I will admit that I'm the one in our house that sleeps through everything or pretends to sleep. On the flip side, if there's sickness, doctor appointments or whatever, I'm the one who does take off work so I like to think it all evens out.

    Ugh, I'm a sympathetic thrower upper so I totally understand. EW. I think the worst for me so far was the stomach flu and diapers that didn't do their ONLY job and a baby who just laughed at me while I said very bad words.

    Tomorrow will be better, right?

  2. Oh the agony! That is when Brandon gets a nice kick in the side from me to help out. Or get one of the kids to tackle him. :) Sorry. I can't stand hot dogs either. What is up with Liam and retching? is he okay?

  3. I am always upset with my husband because he sleeps through everything. The nurses at the hospital had to wake him up when it was time to push for Ainsley. Yeah, that was just a peek into the future of me always getting up with Ainsley.

    Sorry about the puke and the carpet. Ugh, puke in carpet is the worst.

  4. I think I saw a them create an ad like that on 'Mad Men' last season. Or something like that. It was sexist though.

    I'm with april on the puke. I think I can sleep through just about anything.


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
