Remember my shower problem?
Well, The Spouse, after careful consideration, realized that he is perfectly capable of replacing the shredded hose that connects the tap with the shower head. Last night he even left work a little early in hopes of getting to the hardware store before they close.
Alas: they close at 7:30 and he got there at 8:00.
So he took the thing apart, handed me the hose, and told me how to say it in Russian.
Are you ready?
The Russian word for hose is шланг.
That's right. Say SCHLONG.
I cracked up like a prepubescent school boy.
I need a new schlong. My old one doesn't work.
It's sooooo juvenile, I know. But I just can't say it with a straight face.
But I did it! I went to the hardware store, I showed the lady my old, tattered шланг, and she sold me a new one.
Baboo carried it home in a bag.
On a more mature note, I picked up these cards today.
I love Mr. Cat and His Catfish. The title of the piece translates to something like "Here Is Happiness."
And the animals! The title of this one is "Symbols."
