“Funk. This really sucks.”
When I was pregnant with my firstborn, that’s what I used to grumble to my husband about having to get up every hour in the middle of the night to use the restroom.
In his usual uncaring manner, Funk responded that I should buy some Depends.
The next time we were at the grocery, I walked past them and excitedly said, “Hey Funk, look, they have those Depends here!” and then tossed a box in the cart. For an auditor, my husband is SOOOOO gullible. His eyes got big and scared, thinking I was serious.
It never pays to mess with someone out of your league.
The photo: Funk takes people as a WHOLE quite seriously. This is him earnestly signing his “Commitment to Kansas City” —a pre-election promise made—and kept—to the citizens of our city. Sadly, for INDIVIDUAL peons, my husband doesn’t take us quite as seriously. Not unless you shake him up. Which I do daily, like it’s my job.
