The Queen Has Spoken

Queen's crown

Yes.  I am the Queen.  At least in my own home.  I’m sure no one else would grant me this distinction – but my family has no choice in the matter – and it really is true what they say, ‘If Momma ain’t happy – ain’t NOBODY happy’.  So they let me be the Queen.

Unfortunately it is in name only – as I’ve been loathe to discover, especially as of late.  The other day my car key just mysteriously disappeared off my key ring.  It couldn’t have happened at a more inconvenient time either – as my daughter and I were about to go somewhere and were under some serious time pressure.  My 19-year-old son, lost his keys somewhere at church – and ever since that happened he has been ‘borrowing’ our keys.  Now the question that I have to ask is this:  ‘why can’t he go make himself another set of keys?’  But that would be way too simple.  And we’re talking about someone who is 19.  So I ‘borrowed’ my husband’s car key for MY CAR and away we went – we couldn’t wait for Shawn to come home and give me my key.  But I was REALLY UPSET and told him he would have to deal with his father – I was OUT!  I told Greg to kill the boy and then pry my car key out of his cold dead fingers.  Greg texted back that he had buried him in a shallow grave in the backyard and that my key was safely on the counter waiting for me when I got home 🙂

Remember last year when I wrote that my car charger was missing out of MY car?  And when my son (18 years old at the time of the inquiry) came in the door – I confronted him with, ‘Where is my car charger??  You know – the one in MY CAR – that belongs to me??’  And he just looked at me calmly and said, ‘it’s in Connor’s car’ as if that settled the question once and for all – and that I was being most annoying asking.  Of COURSE it would be in Connor’s car – what was I thinking!

Well – last year revisited me on the same day my car key mysteriously disappeared – and would you believe it – it’s back in Connor’s car???  You think you’re losing a grasp of reality?  Try having a teenage son.  I can glimpse reality – and at times I think I have it almost within reach – but the more I keep trying to grab a hold of it – the more it slips away.   *sigh*

So last night I was getting ready for bed and reached for my Burt’s bees peppermint chapstick – (it’s my favorite and I’m hopelessly addicted to chapstick) and even IT WAS GONE!  I think someone is trying to mess with me.  Oh it’s not the big things – it’s all the little pesky things that don’t really matter at all – and easily replaced that will drive you nuts!

You can see that the ‘Queen’ has no real power around here – even when I fuss and fume about MY things.  I speak – no one listens.  Oh well – my boys still adore me and love to tease me – so I know I am still their number one – and that’s a good feeling.

The Queen has spoken.

God Bless

  1. Even the queen can lose her chapstick!

  2. In our house our son likes to call that “sharing”. I could write whole books about that by now; it works only one way and that is his way,;)
    Car batteries, wagon loads of food, even socks and T shirts have been “borrowed” and never returned. I must have handed out millions of dollars over the years to DS and that too has completely disappeared.
    I might have to contact this Connor….maybe he knows where it has gone. 😉
