Spending 24/7 for 4 solid weeks with their parents, the twinions were thrilled to get home and play with their toys again (“I missed Austraya, Mama…”).
When some Jehovah’s Witnesses came knocking on the door the day after our homecoming, they jumped at the chance at talking to someone new about their holiday and showing of their toys.
K-Bear was demonstrating his Luke Skywalker light saber skills.
Nunu tried to scare them with his Death Vader Mask.
Probably not the objective that our door knockers had in mind.
Really, what were they expecting at 8 in the morning?
Just as the visit seemed pointless for our guests, my darling husband made a throw away comment, “Yeah, sure…come back next week!”
Who remembers what people ever say?
Jehovah’s Witnesses. That’s who.
Struggling to get through the first full week of school, by Wednesday morning the chaos hit fever pitch.
The screaming banshees were in the lounge room protesting they didn’t want to go to school while I tried to escape for a two minute shower.
Realising we had run out of bread and milk (or just finding an excuse to get out of the house), Mr Surfer made a quick run to the shops, leaving behind the house key.
So when the door bell rang while I was in the shower, I started getting huffy and do some serious cussing while grabbing the nearest towel.
Stomping to the front door, dripping wet, I unlock it and turn my heel to get back to the remaining minute of my shower.
I walk half way back to the bathroom to realize that there is actually no husband following me back up the corridor.
Instead, there’s last week’s Jehovah’s Witness standing at the door, looking slightly perplexed but perhaps more embarrassed…for me.
Because there I am. In my wet and glamorous Wednesday morning from hell white bath towel glory.
“Er…right now’s not a good time…” is all I manage to mutter.
Of course, Mr Surfer walks in a minute later. With his key.
Seriously. You can’t make this shit up.
How was your back to school week? Ever greeted JW’s semi-naked?
