I think I may have mentioned before that I’m pretty sure hubby believes that little fairies live in our house.
- There are crumb fairies that wipe our counters
- There are laundry fairies that wash our clothes
- There are toiletry fairies that re-stock our shampoo & toothpaste
I’m not sure if each fairy has it’s own job or if a fairy can take on multiple tasks. If each one is specialized, we must have quite the little dorm room in our attic somewhere.
I was always concerned that his fairy delusions would be his downfall and I’ve often worried that perhaps he suffers from an inability to differentiate between what’s real & what’s not real.
He seems to believe that he can summon these fairies whenever there’s a task that needs to be completed that he, himself has chosen not to do.
I have often declared to him… THERE ARE NO FAIRIES YOU FOOL!!! It’s me who’s doing all these things! But he goes about his business of watching movies and playing video games and lo and behold the “fairies” are hard at work around him. These fairies don’t complete any of my tasks but, they seem to have taken a liking to hubby and they oftentimes complete his side of many of our shared chores.
Yes, he’s a lucky guy (or I’m a stupid woman – I’m sure it’s debatable) ……. OR….. perhaps, just maybe, there’s something behind his theory of fairies.
Now normally, I wouldn’t entertain such nonsense. I don’t believe hubby has any super powers and I didn’t believe that he could communicate on a subconscious level UNTIL………..
Something happened last week that made me wonder………………….
We were sitting on the couch watching tv. And hubby declares… .”You know what, I’d like a chocolate shake”. Well there ya go, he put it out there into the world. I’m sure he was hoping that the fairies could hear him. But alas, they were already asleep up in the attic, after having worked pretty hard all day. So, I don’t think he got the response he was hoping for. He says again… “Don’t you think a chocolate shake would taste really good right now?”. So, in my most loving, wifey voice I say… “ummm… sure honey, I suppose if you really want one, you should go out and get one”.
I can tell he’s thinking about it, then he says…“yeah, but I really don’t feel like going out”. To which I ever-so-lovingly say… “well then, I guess you are S-O-L aren’t you?” Then, an epiphany hits me…. and I jokingly say to him.. “you know, I bet if you called your mom, she’d go get you a chocolate shake”. He thinks for a minute and laughs.. and then says “you know, I bet she would” And then…..
POOF! The phone rings.
Holy crap… it’s his mom. (maybe he does have super powers??). I can’t hear her side of the conversation but I can only imagine that she’s saying something like this…”Honey, the universe just called to me and mentioned you’re interested in a chocolate shake. I’m assuming the fairies are all asleep by now, so is there any particular place you’d like me to go?”. And, if you can possibly believe this (cause I couldn’t make this story up if I wanted to…..), with my mouth agape, and eyes wide with shock, about 15 minutes later hubby did indeed take delivery of a frozen chocolate shake.
I had no idea hubby was telepathic. I’m not sure what sort of mind control abilities he has. And now, I’m a bit afraid of going into the attic, because I’m wondering if there just might be a brigade of fairies living up there.
Now, if only he would use these powers for good instead of evil. I bet we could actually cross some things off our to do list!
And I guess the moral of this little story is: If there aren’t any fairies available you always have your mom!
