I have been feeling lousy...

...so it was with great annoyance that I found myself rummaging everywhere looking for the receipt.
Not in the pile of little bits of paper in my wallet.
Not in the stack of stuff in a bowl by the phone.
Finally, I gave up and went into Mr. Jenny's office in frustration.
"I can't find the receipt! You'll have to take it back to the store without it?"
"Huh?" Mr. Jenny replied.
I repeated myself in an even crankier voice.
"I CAN'T find the stupid receipt! Just take it back to the store without it?"
"What? What are you talking about?" my confused husband answered.
"The vacuum cleaner. The new vacuum cleaner. You want to return it and I can't find the receipt!"
He looked even more puzzled. "Huh? I don't want to return the vacuum cleaner! What are you talking about?"
"Seriously. You told me you hated the new vacuum cleaner!"

"No! I never said that! What are you talking about?"
"Seriously? You did so SAY that! You told me the new vacuum cleaner sucked."
So yeah.
Sucked, in this instance, was a good thing.
The powers of communication are just mind boggling, aren't they?
Just thought I'd share a laugh.
And tell you that I'm getting poked and prodded more later today hoping to find some health answers.
. I'll write when I can.
And you can just feel better knowing that I have well vacuumed floors in the interim!
PS.  Yes.  I know I'm lucky.  Mr. Jenny vacuums the floors around here!

Failure to communicate-LOL!
Hope you feel better son and they can help you.

Jenny Short said...

Jenny, I know you need a break from feeling bad. It can get a body down. I'm believing you're going to find answers today and feel better. Don't like poking and proding! xo Jenny

H said...

I've been absent for a while and I'm sad to catch up that you're feeling lousy! I hope the prodding and poking lead to answers which lead to action which lead to well-being!
Meanwhile - good word play :D

Rod does the vacuuming around here! I'm off for my stress test in a little while. Rod's going with me! Talk to you later.


Karen S. said...

Funny! It's so good to see the old happy go lucky Jenny posting here. What would we do without the Jenny and Mr. Jenny humor of the day! Good luck with everything today!

So good! You had me going for a while there, Jenny.
We are so tuned into new styles of expessing ourselves, we don't stop to think straight!

Jo said...

hey Jenny ... sending you hugs from across the miles and hoping that you are feeling better very very soon ...

Pam Beers. said...

A good vacuum cleaner sucks, so this is a good thing. The fact that you are not feeling well also sucks, but this is a bad thing.

What's going on?

Sandy McClay said...

lol...ah the art of communication with a spouse! Thinking of you and sending you good vibrations...:)

Ms. A said...

In vacuum cleaner lingo, sucks is a good thing!

I'm impressed you can make us laugh even while not feeling well. Hope they find the answer soon.

A vacuum cleaner that actually sucks. Ha.

Hope you're feeling better soon.;-)

Judy SheldonWalker said...

Yes, a vacuum cleaner that actually sucks is a good thing, but health that sucks is quite another. Have a good day and recover quickly.

Pat Tillett said...

We have two vacuum cleaners. One of them sucks in a good way and one of them sucks in a bad way. That's okay though, I'm NOT going to tote a single vacuum up and down stairs.
I don't know why you are getting poked and prodded, but I hope it's not serious and that you are feeling better in a hurry.

knitwit said...

Too funny. Hope you get the answers you're looking for and feel better soon!!

Busy Bee Suz said...

My vacuum sucks too!
I hope you get some answers Jenny....it's time to feel better. XOXO

Sue (Someones Mom) said...

I came to check on you and I am so sorry you are still not feeling well. I'm glad you took a moment to laugh, you must be very tired of poking and prodding. I am saying a little prayer that you have some answers soon.

Moore Minutes said...

This is SO funny...had to have my husband read it. ;)

Splendid Little Stars said...

Oh yeah. A sucky vacuum is a good thing!
Here's to answers...

Melinda c said...

I talk just that way. For instance, " you know that thing that doesn't work?" "we need to get that fixed." I know what I am talking about, why doesn't anyone else. good lord.
