I admit it. I was quite proud of the fact that I "lifted" a great Meme from Jz, who had taken it (with permission) from Olivia. It was fun and the more bloggers who jumped on board and joined our band of thieves, the happier I felt. Why, I loved having partners in crime and I wasn't afraid to say it, even brag about it to Eric, who was being rather silly between layovers.
"Amy Lynn! You little thief!" he chided. "What if the other HOH's find out you are the one who instigated this robbery and led their wives into a life of law breaking tendencies?!"
"Is stealing a Meme really breaking the law?" I asked.
"Aaaaamy!" Eric used the long version of my vowel in his warning against the mouthy questioning of authority.
"Show me the penal code," I demanded.
Eric responded, with a laugh, "You said penal."
Oh brother. Once a man, always a man.
We bantered back and forth about twenty minutes more and then his flight was called.
"I've got to go," he said hurriedly and I pictured him gathering up his coffee cup, laptop case, roller bag, newspaper, and phone; reluctant to end the call but needing to slip back into work mode.
"You tell your fellow thieves that when I get home," Eric threatened in a most delicious tone of voice, "Ms. Amy Lynn is going to get her ass reddened, ten swats for each partner in crime."
So dear blog friends, allow me to THANK YOU all for playing along, as I now certainly have something to look forward to upon Eric's return. Oh, and for those of you who have slipped "into a life of law breaking tendencies", my bad! Please accept my apologies.
