Doing it Mission Style

 What happened when my Mom decided I could inherit my great-great-grandmother's mission style china cabinet?
Nothing good, I assure you.
I honestly had no room for it; all the walls in my cracker style house (an early Florida design that maximizes air flow and shade to counter-act the lack of air conditioning in the 20's) were too narrow. I was determined that I'd find a place, but as time drew close for Sam to leave school and come home, I felt fair warning was in order. AIM to the rescue...

    Hey, um, take your time at the grocery store
    See if they have guitars
    Maybe Bobby Flay will be there signing spaghetti squash

 Sam 4:13 pm
    Um, why do I have an odd feeling that I shouldn't be home for a while?

 Sunny 4:14 pm
    Um............I dunno?
    How's the blood pressure today?
    Do you love me?

 Sam 4:15 pm
    of course I love you
    what did you do?
 Sunny 4:15 pm

 Sunny 4:16 pm
    Well, nothing you told me not to do
 Sam 4:16 pm
    there are quite a few things I've never told you not to do
    I've always figured some things were implied

 Sunny 4:17 pm
    I'd learn from this experience then if I were you
Sam 4:23 pm    OK, I'm heading out
    and I'm taking my time
    if there is anything else you need give me a shout

 Sunny 4:23 pm
    See you at the landfill...I mean home
    I love you
 Sam 4:24 pm
    I love you too
    and you love to test that sometimes, don't ya

 Sunny 4:24 pm
    What fun would life be without the occasional pop quiz?

 Sam 4:24 pm
    if you say so
    see you at home
Sunny 4:25 pm   There's no real chaos, I swear. Byeeeeeeee

Haha, this is a post I need to send to Ryan for male commiseration :)
Can't wait to see what you did. I'm guessing you put it in the kitchen?
