Going Upper (middle) Class

We recently did the whole birthday hoopla. And with that, Dustin's parents came to visit. And with them came a boat.

This isn't one of those fancy-pants boats that you show off to your friends while your butler brings you another martini. No, this is one of those boats that you get because you love water and can't afford one. And your in-laws really don't want it hanging around, anyway.

It is actually in good condition. The most work will be clean up. A thick layer of Texas dirt covers everything. But it runs and they gave us paraphernalia like skis and a tube. So, COOL!

It should be noted that, if I were okay with it, Dustin might sleep on the boat. He loves it so much. The weather has done very little more than rain in the last few days and he is just terribly distraught about the lack of TLC the boat has received.

And then I come along and say things like, "Oooooh, we are going to need to get some cup holders." And I see him die a little.

Probably shouldn't mention how I feel about getting a first aid kit, huh?


  1. I did die a little inside... but I figure a few cup holders are a small price have you on-board for the cleanup (no pun intended).

  2. Jami - Love the blog. I chuckle *out loud* every time I stop bye for a visit.

    Hope all is well with you and your family! :)


  3. Oooh, color coordinate the cup holders to match the boat's interior! And you can make a customized first-aid kit to match the cup holders and interior--just use a pretty makeup box and fill it with cute Band-Aids (might I suggest Band-Aids of the Hello Kitty variety?)! Perhaps you can tie in the colors of the tube, skis, and tow rope into the general boat decorating scheme?

    All that aside, I want to ride in your boat and show you how badly I ski. D and I can ski while you and M spot (M can't ski either). Maybe D and I could work up a little routine...something involving flaming long as it's all color-coordinated!

  4. PS--When you get a butler, have him bring me a martini, too. Because getting a butler is the next logical step after getting a boat.

  5. Yeah, I'm going to need a ride on that boat because we're still aspiring to middle class :)


You have my undivided attention.
