SHOULDN'T THERE BE RETRIBUTION?

This afternoon I was home alone. I was making some Asian salad dressing and had the blender running. All of a sudden I heard a horribly loud noise and the floor shook. I screamed and turned around to flee when I see Phil standing there, stomping and grinning.

"I didn't want to scare you," he said, "by saying 'hi.' You know how you are, you get scared when I talk to you."

Yes, I do, when I think I'm home alone and all of a sudden someone is talking to me. But a loud-noise-floor-shaking experience? That's not scary?

There should be retribution.

Maybe if he oversleeps you could run the blender in the bedroom and tell him you didn't want to startle him by saying hi.

One time, my husband left for work so I hopped in the shower. (This was pre-kids, I was home alone.) When I got out of the shower, I wrapped up in a towel and went to my room to get dressed. I saw that the closet door was open, so I pushed it shut. It opened itself back up. I looked to see what had happened. Oh, well, there was a 6'4" man in there. I screamed and collapsed to the floor in tears. It was my hubby. He had forgotten something and came back. In order to not frighten me, he HID IN MY CLOSET! WHERE IS THE LOGIC IN THAT?!?!? Obviously, this was over 10 years ago and I still haven't totally forgiven him.

Yes, retribution is in order.

I TOTALLY get my startly-ness from you. How come I never put the two together?

Every time Max scares me (by talking) I tell him he is going to be sad when I am dead of fright and he is a widower.

After reading Jessica's comments, I think that one is worse, but I agree retribution in the spirit of Love is totally in order.

That Phil. He is keeping you young by keeping your heart exercised.

You didn't tell them how you ran around in circles in little tiny steps while pounding your chest with you hands.....when I didn't scare you by lightly tapping my foot on the kitchen floor instead of saying, "HI", which really scares you.

Love you,
