He's laughing at me. See?!?

We were hit with a hail storm the other night.  We were pummeled.

Miraculously Alex slept through the whole thing and was spectacularly pissed the next morning when he found out Lizzy was up for it.  There I was, running around the house throwing myself in front of windows yelling incoherently, "Not the windows!  Do you know how much I paid for those goddammed drapes?  Not The Windows!!!"  It was so loud I couldn't hear my husband telling me I was a whacked out lunatic and to get away from the windows before I got my head bashed in. 

We were pummeled to the tune of loosing one quarter of the roof, all the gutters and downspouts, exterior lighting, plus all the window trim and any exterior woodwork.  The west side of the deck looks like its been sandblasted and the two cars out in the drive were totaled.

I tell you that to tell you this:

My sister came over and took the kids outside to play on the driveway a few weeks ago.  They made beautiful creations and they had a blast with chalk and paint.  They were so proud.  She logged in some hours as Super Aunt and left feeling like a rock star.  They had fun and I had a quiet house.  I was happy.

Everything went away with the storm except for this asshole:  

My sister drew him with not so washable paints.  Even golf ball size hail at seventy miles per hour didn't wipe that shit eating grin off its face.  

Every time I go in and out of the house I run over it and see it grinning at me.  I know I shouldn't be subscribing life to inanimate objects but I know that little turd is laughing its ass of at me. 


  1. That sounds like an awful day/night. Glad you're OK and sorry about all the stuff around the house. Including the crazy face on the driveway.

  2. Oh, this is so funny. I'm sorry about all the damage, but that maniacally grinning cartoon face? Yeah, he's pretty funny! And durable!

  3. I'm pretty sure a gallon of bleach will take care of the jerk. Douse him with bleach!

  4. Ooooooh!!! Golf ball sized hail? My son would be so jealous.

    Btw, paint is laughing at you.

  5. really..I mean, I GET trying to protect your windows-I do-and I feel awful about the damage..but the little circular demon head from hell? Absolutely hysterical.. Your sister is now a rock star in my eyes as well..

  6. How awful. Seriously, golf ball sized hail that caused that much damage? What's next, a plague? What a fucking bummer. I'm guessing that you don't own firearms or you would have taken the happy face out by now.

  7. @Christy--Thanks---we've been thru worse so this is just a hassle.

    @Patty O.--I know...I thought for sure the hail would wipe it's little smile right off--wrong.

    @Rebecca---I never thought of that's all I can think of....bleach....

    @Big Daddy--I saved some in the freezer for the insurance adjustor, you know, just in case they want proof. Griffin can have it when they're done. :)

    @Kathleen--I think she made it extra evil. I thought I heard her snort from laughing so hard when she was out there and I was like, naaa...

    @Lynn--Yeah I would have blown him to bits, screw the concrete bill. But wait, you have a number for firearms and ammo, don't you? ;)

  8. Thank God you are all ok. But, BWAHAHAHA...the smiley dude...I would be so irritated.

  9. I am glad that it was only the inanimate objects that were injured. I would have been yelling at the window just like you, by the way!

    And thank you for the sweet comment about my post yesterday!

  10. Sorry about the hail -wow! That is really some kind of paint there. I don't think I keep that at my house anymore. Perhaps, you could take some of it over to your sister's house and leave her a little message outside... ;)

  11. Oh my gosh, that SUCKS!! So sorry to hear that. Maybe Mr. Paint was there to stand guard and keep your windows safe? I dunno.

    But wait, did the train and horse survive? That's the important thing...

  12. Hello Lizbeth,
    I'm so sorry to read about all the damage done to your property. I can't imagine what that must be like. I don't really know what to say other than I'm glad you are alright and your family managed to cope through it.
    Thinking of you. Praying for you.
    Love you loads.
    Lisa. xxx :(

  13. Wow! That sounds like quite a storm!

    Thanks for stopping by on my special SITS day. All the comment love was greatly appreciated! :)


Comments make me all squishy but remember to be nice. If you're not nice then what you said goes *poof.* There's your warning.
