Scenario:  Just arrived home from taking Madeline to her dr. appointment.  Jeremy is smoking a turkey and taking care of Susannah

Me:  “Jeremy, why is there a gun scope in the kitchen?”

Jeremy: “I was using it to check the temperature of my meat”

Me: “Why didn’t you just go outside to check it?”

Jeremy:  “I did, but Susannah kept locking me out of the house so I resorted to the scope….”

Hehehehee….!!  Actually, not quite as funny when it’s happening to you as it is to everyone else.  She locked me out the other day when I ran out to the mailbox.  The difference between then and today?  I had no key.
