I’ll admit that I have a bit of “pregnant brain”. It sort of brings me back to the “mush brain” I was experiencing while I was unemployed. Sometimes I don’t make sense, my memory is somewhat lacking and there are days, where you might just call me stupid (ok, maybe it’s more that I do stupid things than I’m actually stupid – but, I’m sure that’s debatable)
BUT my question today is…….. What would explain the “pregnant brain” that hubby is currently exhibiting?
We all know he is generally oblivious to stuff around him. We also know that he has expertly honed his ability to employ Selective Vision. So, I’m not sure why I’m surprised when he’s clueless about things right in plain sight.
A few months back (yes, I did say months), we had some trouble with our air conditioning. So, we promptly grabbed a fan from the basement and set it up in our bedroom to help keep us cool while we slept and waited for the AC repair guy. I think our AC was fixed in about 3 days (HOORAY!). And there sat the fan. Days passed, weeks passed, and then finally months passed…. AND…… there sat the fan.
Now, practically every day, I noticed the fan. I mean, heck, it’s kind of big and it’s smack there in our bedroom. I moved it to get into my closet. I tried to ignore it as the cleaning ladies cleaned around it. And, I waited. And waited. And waited. As you know, if you’ve been reading regularly, I’m pregnant. And, I didn’t want to attempt to carry this fan all the way back down into the basement on my own. So….. I w-a-i-t-e-d. Not saying a word, just wondering when, if ever, it would hit hubby’s radar.
Then one day, being a woman, I just had to say something.
“Honey, do you think you can move that fan into the basement at some point?”
And, as if the baby had sucked away all his brain cells, he innocently looks at me and says……. “What fan?”
And folks, I’m flabbergasted. It’s big, it’s OBVIOUS, and it’s on hubby’s side of the bed. And yet, he has no idea what I’m talking about. It’s been there so long, that it’s now a part of our bedroom.
I honestly think it could have possibly stayed there…….. FOREVER.
And, just to paint a better picture for you….. I just had to catch a snapshot of proof. Please tell me how you could miss this??
