Smooth move.

We are in the waiting room at the lawyer's office. We are the only ones here. The Husband pulls out his coin to practice and promptly drops it as loudly as possible on the wood floor. Smooth.
I laughed because before he did that, you could've heard a pin drop. He was so embarrassed.

Dye Job

The Husband dyed a hat!!!!
It was a horrific khaki-like color (there's a reason the thrift store was only asking for a dollar). Now, it's a beautiful navy color that matches the Husband's mechanic clown costume.
The only problem is...I told him to wash the pot. I come home from the Son's friend's birthday party on Saturday and I find a pot with traces of dye all in it in my kitchen sink. Sitting there. Waiting. Screaming "Please wash me as I am a pot you still want to cook with!!!!"
Luckily, I think we'll all live the next time we cook in that pot. After all, I did wash it.

Annoying Coin Tricks

A couple weeks ago, the Husband sent me to the bank. My mission? Exchange 2 one dollar bills for 4 half dollar coins. How'd it go? Failure. The bank said they just don't have those coins.
So the Husband went to 2 more banks. Still nothing. Then, third time's the charm. He got his half dollars. Then after practicing with his new rare coins, he learned that there's a dollar coin that's gigantic. Now he's practicing with I can't take him anywhere.
I thought the disappearing card trick for a week was the most annoying thing, but this tops that because of the irritating clinking sound the coin makes every single time it hits the floor. Can the Husband practice on carpeted floors? Apparently not. Can he limit his practicing to at home so the entire metro area doesn't see me get irritated with him? Also an impossibility. Waiting for a table at a restaurant, waiting for food at a restaurant, in the check-out line at Target, watching the Son play trains at Barnes and Noble, at day care...
The worst part is he's not mastering this one as quickly as he has other tricks...looks like I'm in for a few more weeks of this. Oh the sufferings of a clown's wife!
It's interesting that the Husbands was the one who suggested I post my irritation with him on the Internet. :D

Good thing I'm not afraid of clowns...

...because this is what I woke up to yesterday morning. Apparently the Husband had gotten them at his clown alley meeting the night before.

Buzz Lightyear Balloon

The Husband made this for the Son's best friend's birthday. It took him about 2 hours to make and I'm guessing it's about 3 feet tall. It's the first time he's made a Buzz Balloon, but we think it came out pretty well for a first attempt. Now let's just hope it survives the car ride to the party!
