And Lo, The Heavens Parted....

...And the Seventh Seal was revealed.

Cause I love you all so much, thought I'd warn you that the Apocalypse is near; you might want to start doing the stuff on your "If I Had a Week to Live" list.

My sister called me while I was laying in my bed, pretending to be sleeping.

"What are you doing?"

"I'm in bed, I've given up. I can't take anymore."

"It's 7:30."

"I know. What's up?"

"I need your recipe."

Pause. I remove the phone from my ear and pinch myself.

"This is Jennifer."

"Quit being a smart ass. I need the recipe for your oatmeal cookies."

"And I don't want to read about this on your blog."

I'll take, "She's Three Hours Away and Probably Won't Hop in Her Car to Come and Kick My Ass" for $10,000, Alex.

Get busy folks. The end is near.

Snort. "And I don't want to read about this on your blog." I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard that.

Hmmm, I think that may only have been the sixth seal. The seventh would have been if she had asked you for directions.

I wonder if I can use this post as an excuse to take this last week on earth off work?

Miracle reveals itself as oatmeal. Love it.

Maybe you should bake a batch of those cookies just in case she does drive the 3 hours.
And if she doesn't show up you have some yummy oatmeal goodness to share with your girls... or mail to me?

You should have just told her you would post the recipe at the end of the post you were going to write about how she called you to ask for a recipe.

Uh. congratulations? AND I'm totally taking next week off for the big apocalypse. I have some cars to claim. You know, "In case of rapture this car will be empty." Well, I've been looking to upgrade.... so this is my big moment. Thanks for the warning!

Oh, The Joys said...

What? No posted recipe? The Lady Flabina must eat EVERYTHING before she's taken down.

I was backstage before my show the other night and the actor who always walks in 10 minutes before the show came in 45 minutes early. I said "yikes! you're early! Is Jesus walking in right behind you? Because surely this is a sign of the 2nd coming!"

I knew there was a reason I was organizing and labeling all my spices. The end is near you say, hmmmmm.... Thanks for the heads up!
