Cauliflower and milk

As I tried to relax in the bathtub last night, I heard this conversation:

“Who put the cauliflower on the shelf where the milk is supposed to be?”

“Not me!”

“I did! Because SOMEBODY had stuck the cauliflower where it got in the way of closing the door!”

“Well don’t blame ME!”

“Why would you put the cauliflower THERE?! That’s a stupid place for cauliflower!”

“Why are you always blaming ME for EVERYTHING?”

“Well where am I supposed to put the milk now?”

“That’s YOUR problem! I cleaned my share of the table!”

Sigh. Is it just me, or does your family also enjoy arguing so much that they can fight over cauliflower and milk? If you’re one of those really evolved families that calmly discusses everything and ALWAYS settles disputes without any raised voices, please walk away now or I may have to hurt you.

Do you notice me not walking away? :)

I'm so glad it's not just my two darlings.

sometimes I feel like I should call my Mom and tell her I'm sorry.

Yeah, Vicki's comment made me smile. Heather, that sooooo could have been us 25 years ago. :-)

I'm an only child, and Cory's sister wasn't born until he was twelve, so the effect is that we are two parents with zero tolerance for bickering. Also sometimes I think I'm going insane.

Last night, I heard nothing but very loud hopping and my son's voice. Then my daughter stormed into my room declaring that he was trying to tell her something and she already knew what he wanted to say. Therefore, he should not speak at all? I'm not sure what the logic was that time.

Hmmm you won't have to hurt me!

You may have to hurt me b/c my daughters never fight over such things ... any more. :)

Impeccable logic.

Does it not amaze you? What's really crazy is when I catch myself arguing about equally retarded things...
