Wednesday evening I rushed home from work to change clothes and meet a few friends at our house to carpool to a dinner in honor of Judy, a wonderful friend who has been fighting Stage IV breast cancer.
During the whirlwind tour of my house, DH came home after working over at some land of ours that has a creek running through it. He called me out to the kitchen to see “what he brought me”. :/ I walked over to the kitchen sink only to see a crayfish! Now isn’t that what everyone wants to see in their kitchen sink?
My cousin arrived first and when I stepped out from changing clothes to greet her, I noticed my new little friend was no longer in the sink so I assumed(big mistake) that DH had taken our darling lil Mud-bug outside and disposed of it.
A few minutes later, Judy arrived as well as our church’s lead pastor’s wife, who incidentally, I did not know was coming to my house and then add in that she had never been to our house.
Now, not that I think the pastor’s wife is a queen or anything like that but as with when anyone new comes to your home, you’d like for your home to be picked up and clean. Since I was in a hurry when I came home, picked up and clean wasn’t goin’ on. I dumped all my work materials on the table, threw my coat across the chair, mail everywhere, a cooler and a crayfish bucket on the counter, yada, yada, you get the picture.
I just did an “oh well” shrug to myself as there wasn’t anything I could do about it at that point when all of a sudden my friend says, sounding a little frightened – what is that? Guess what was laying on my dining room table, on a paper plate nonetheless….
You guessed it … Mr. MudBug! The expression on our Pastor’s wife face was priceless. In addition to the fact that she only had daughters, I would bet in all of her years as a pastors wife and going to different people’s homes, I’ll bet ours was the first one she ever saw a crayfish on the table. Just keepin’ me humble…..
