Do You Promise to Love, Honor, Cherish, and Handle Gross Things?

Methinks it may be time to get rid of the Halloween pumpkin.

It's leaking all over the place and is covered in mold. There's probably a family of badgers living in it. My cousin said it looks like an old perv.

Speaking of old pervs, I asked Chuckles when he was going to get rid of it for me.

He proceeded to tell me that it was MY pumpkin, and I should get rid of it myself. He'd only do it if I gave him $5.

I told him that the reason I have a husband is to do disgusting things for me like shovel an old, rotting pumpkin off the front porch.

I'm sure it was mentioned in our wedding vows...

I agree with Chuckles. $5 is a small price to pay.

Kyna said...

You HAVE to agree with Chuckles.

It's part of the Bro Code, I'm sure.

"Rule#232: A bro always backs up another bro when it comes to cleaning up their wives rotting holiday decorations."

Sorry Chuckles, I am sure it was in the fine print on the wedding vows.
I know I get to do all that kind of stuff round here.

Turling said...

How the hell did you get a hold of the handbook?

Kyna said...

Well, I'M the one who puts up the Christmas lights. Which I'm doing right now.

That's man's work. So he owes me, dammit.

Looks rather cute.... A bit like Karl malden

Kyna said...

I think he looks like Mr. Grainger off of 'Are You Being Served?'.

Give him the five bucks but make it a CANADIAN FIVE and that's how you trick him. See what I did there? Huh?

Seems like just when some old pumpkin gets some personality there is always someone ready with a shovel to sent you to the compost heap.

Did you get a free bowl of soup with that hat? I like the kitty kat motif though.

Hi Kyna,

I bet it also stink like some dirty old person who doesn't wash often enough!

Ours was beginning to smell after just a day or two, I had to get rid of it and Pete had fun throwing it around to smash it up. I imagine yours will smush as soon as you touch it. Mmmmm, rotten pumpkin on your shoe, lovely.

Just seconds ago, Chuckles took the poor pumpkin bastard into the forest across the street.

Funniest thing I've witnessed in a long time. I laughed so hard, I'm sure my eye makeup was streaming down my face.

He had to make three trips.

LOL, I love seeing the pumpkin faces get all smooshed as they rot, but I hate shoveling decaying pumpkin goo. The chickens did a good job on the one we gave them, but the remains looked a bit deflated (and somewhat cross-eyed) this weekend, so off to the compost it went!
