Playing the Guilt Card

This morning, I found this note behind a dresser. I’m not sure when it was written or under what circumstances, but it pretty much cuts to the chase:


I’m about 82% positive my wife didn’t actually say “I don’t love you” to our 7-year-old son. He came to that conclusion after-the-fact based on some sort of traumatic interaction or event involving his mom. Three possible scenarios:

  1. A remnant of crust remained on a butter-and-jelly sandwich she had prepared for him.
  2. At bedtime, she laid in bed with his brother for 15 seconds longer than she did with him.
  3. She suggested that Yoda’s lightsaber skills are overrated.

Oh no she didn’t!

No, she probably didn’t.

  1. Ha! I love this. When Nolan’s 21 and wants to drown his sorrows, tell him to give me a call. I always have vodka in the freezer.

  2. Don’t discount the possibility that this could be a strategic terrorist attack of some kind Chase. Maybe our enemies abroad are just trying to undermine cool blogging families. You may want to submit that to Homeland Security. 🙂

  3. Gotta rule out an attack on Yoda. If that were the case, surely the note would have read, “Love me you bon’t,” right?

    This cracks me up. I’ve so been there. Thanks for the laugh.

  5. LOL! Love the backwards “d”.

  6. But at least Nolan has a mom.

    (shhhh. Don’t tell Vivian.)
