Is there such a thing as a one sentence conversation?

Folks, Spring break has arrived!

At last, a break from nagging reminding the Son to set his alarm clock, study for midterms, and complete projects.

I’m finally able to clear away the mountains of books that have given our living room its “library after the hurricane” avant-garde look these past two weeks.

Only one book has been left in sight: Life of Pi, a book I started to read three years ago but sadly, have never finished.

Yes, I’m quite grateful for this break.

I’m looking forward to photographing the emerging signs of spring.

Already, the crocus have sprouted and the birds are chirping.

There’s only one caveat: knowing I also have to do some spring cleaning.

But before I start rummaging for cleaning supplies, I wanted to share with you what has to be the shortest conversation I’ve ever had with the Significant Other.

However, know that you won’t be reading a dialogue.

And that this conversation took place at a bus stop.

And that it consists of one sentence.

Yet it showcases a “twist” on our recent topic of comparison.

Ironically, I used comparison to stop comparison dead in its tracks.


Read on.

“I’ll look like this

when you look like this

Enough said.

And now I’m off to find the Hazmat suit.

The bathroom needs scrubbing!

Have a good week, friends!

    1. Adriene, maybe I should have mentioned I counted a whole lot of nonverbal language as part of the conversation! hee hee! Thank you! :)

    1. Diane, sometimes we say the most, without actually saying a word. And a picture at times does say more than a thousand words. :)

    1. Monica, loud and clear, methinks! hee hee! I’m hoping the Son will spend some time with friends and out of the house so I can hog the laptop! :)

  1. Wow, those ads are almost racier than the ones around Italy! (Someday I’ll do a post on them.) Grrrrrrreat conversation with the SO!!! Happy scrub-a-dub-dubbing, Bella

    1. Jann, it’s your turn to do a photo post on the racy advertising in Italy! Your fans await! Come on, show us why the Italians do it better! hee hee! I’m scubbing and scrubbing but it’s hard to manage with the Hazmat suit! ha! :)

    1. Totsy, it’s great to behave a little naughty from time to time but it’s always fun to mess with the Significant Other! Poor guy. He’s so out of his league! hee hee! :)

    1. Paz, I’m honored that you think so! Thank you! The crocus are already in full bloom. Spring is in the air, my friend! :)

    1. bwhahaha! Essential, we really have to get Laura to reveal her strategy! I can only get the Significant Other to clean when I threaten to key his 1967 Mustang Fastback! hee hee! :)

  2. LOL!! :-) That was perfectly stated, Bella. No wonder it was a one-sentence conversation. I mean, what else could be said? LOL :-) xoxo

    1. Ariana, he reacted with his usual reaction–pulling up his shirt, pointing to his abs and saying, “I already have abs like that!” Yeah, right! :)

  3. You reminded me of that old – graffiti? what was it? never mind – saying: “If I become a perfect girlfriend, I’ll be looking for a perfect boyfriend.”

    1. Ivana, I’ve never heard of the old graffiti but I have to say I like the sound of it! Not to mention it makes absolute sense! :)

  4. I love having Spring Cleaning done, but I don’t like having to do it! Still, despite the hard work, it’s gratifying to have a clean home. Poor SO, what could he have said to that?!

    1. Debbie, you’re right–spring cleaning does leave one with a sense of accomplishment. But what a pain in the derriere, right? I’m happy to report the Significant Other was rendered speechless. Although, what am I saying? I usually have that effect on the poor guy! hee hee! :)

    1. bwhahaha! Trust you to appreciate a nicely shaped man, Kim! I’m so glad I’m not alone in this endeavor! hee hee! Luv you back, lady! Kisses from little Roxy! :)

    1. Renee, thank you! I’m delighted that you approve. Trust me, these brief conversations take more restraint that I would’ve thought possible! :)

    1. Nan, I’m delighted you approve. A woman has to be assertive, you know? And sometimes this means opening her man’s eyes up to reality. :)
