I'd Make a Gin and Tonic...

...if I only had some tonic.

The liquid options in my fridge: Sunny D, milk, flat ginger ale, white wine that was uncorked about 6 weeks ago, and some blue Gatorade. Nothing fizzy and nothing tonic-y. Drat.

I would have stopped at the store on the way home, but we're having a typical spring bout of tornadoes and flooding (seriously). And here I am, stuck in the house with no tonic, but I have some really good gin. That makes it even worse. This is pathetic.

It should probably be mentioned that my parents arrive tomorrow for a weekend visit. No countdown this time because I can only do what I can do. Besides, housework just cuts into my knitting/spinning time. So I'm not really going to freak out over anything...well...except the garage. Maybe I'll just board up all doors and windows leading to the garage and pretend it doesn't exist. What garage? No....I never had a garage. Have you been skipping your medication? You must be thinking of Karen. She has a garage. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

I must get back to preparing for their visit, and I think a sheep just exploded in the guest room. Dang, I wish the tonic fairy would show up. Maybe if I put the bottle of gin under my pillow....

You need to teach your folks to knit and spin. Then they would just view your guest room as being well supplied for their visits.
