It’s Like Groundhog Day

I could tell you about how I spend most of my time in the kitchen. I could tell you about how much I enjoy cooking. I could even share my world-famous chocolate chip waffle recipe with you.

But I won’t.

Instead, I’m going to invite you into my home to eavesdrop on a conversation I have with Jepeto every single morning. It’s not always exactly the same, but certain… key elements, shall we say?… are always, always the same.

volvo key, toyota key, access card

These are not your run-of-the-mill keys. They hide. In plain sight. They're ninjas.

Jepeto – Damn, I’m going to be late! Have you seen my keys?
Me – Did you look in the kitchen?
Jepeto – Yes, they weren’t there.
Me (walking into the kitchen) – You mean they’re not here on the table? (picks up keys)
Jepeto – Oh! I didn’t see them.
Me – Of course not. They’re ninja keys.
Jepeto – Yes, yes they are. Um, have you seen my access card?
Me –   …
Jepeto – I love you. You’re very sexy.
Me – Uh huh. (spots access card on the counter) There’s your card. Go to work.
Jepeto – (leers at me) You want me to bring home the bacon, is that it? (wiggles his eyebrows suggestively)
Me – Sigh. Yes, that’s it exactly. Go away.
Jepeto – Ok, I’m going. (Fusses with his hair) Do I look okay? I mean, if you didn’t know me and you saw me walking down the street, would you want to have sex with me?
Me – Actually, I would.
Jepeto (suspiciously) – You would?
Me – Hah! Actually, the only way I’d have sex with you is if I didn’t know you.
Jepeto –   … (walking out the door)
Me – Have a great day!


Now go check out the other fabulous bloggers participating in this challenge. And tell them they get 200 points if they can tell me where Jepeto has left his keys this morning!
