Beancounter Humor

I have always heard accountants have no sense of humor.  I have been married to one since I was a very, very young woman, and sometimes I agree with that saying.  Other times, well not so much.

This summer has been a difficult time with many changes for us. I have been overwhelmed with helping Mom cope with her loss and her new normal and all the paper work and filings and changes that go along with it , while trying to move beyond my loss also. If ever there was a time for some comic relief this was the year for it

Yesterday was my birthday and I got the same present we have given each other for every occasion for the past 2 years. We look at each other and say "lake house" and "boat".  If we continue living by these metrics we will never have to buy each other another gift for the rest of our lives, (It's the accountants way of gift accounting) but we do still remember each other with cards. This years card totally slayed me!

                                                                Behold!


                                                                                         ( and on the inside)
                              "Life is too short to be subtle"

It was a fun day.  I don't need jewels or furs or the latest hot car, just give me lots of laughs and I am good to go. At the same time, I am not scoffing at the lake house or boat!

    1. Because we have been married so long and I know him so well, I am guessing TheHub stopped at Publix (closest grocery store to our house) because he also came in with some flowers from there.
