My kids are lying here watching "Open Season." My favorite line is when the Debra Messing character says, "That guy really chaps my khakis."
Believe me, Debbie, I know the feeling!
So in honor of Open Season, here's MY chapped khakis list:
*Weather that doesn't stay with the season but instead zips and zaps all over the place (case in point: the 30 degree difference in weather between this weekend and today. Ick).
*Those who park their huge boat SUVs (I can make fun of them now -- hahaha) over the line and then give ME a dirty look when I park next to them.
*Having to wait at the doctor's office. (The good part about this? More knitting time.)
*Pointless homework assignments. My son is taking beginning Spanish this summer, and we just spent half an hour drawing and labeling a map of South America, showing all the countries where Spanish is spoken. I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous. I mean, if you don't know they speak Spanish in Chile, for example, and you happened to end up there by accident and heard everyone speaking Spanish, wouldn't you just start speaking Spanish? It's not like you'd be totally unaware that a Latin American country would be Spanish-speaking, and be so caught off-guard that you wouldn't be able to respond with your hard-earned first-year Spanish. Geez.
What about you???
