My Friend's Next Magnet

I love these magnets .

This was the magnet that I first gave my friend. (And she may be yet be deciding how to use her powers... )

And then she found a fabulous gardening magnet for me.

And indeed my garden does.


Well, leastwise if I squint a bit so I can't see the weeds ...but I appreciate the thought.

Now I am deciding which magnet will next carry on the tradition.

I had an amusing conversation with my dear magnet-gifting friend tonight. There is always something new going on in her life.

The lucky ducky is seriously considering a maid service, because after all why should one waste one's valuable time fighting about who cleans the toilets and does the laundry? Why indeed?

My first reaction is that having a maid is a bit over the top, but probably that's because I instantly visualize myself fretting that the maid will think I'm a bad housekeeper. And I can't see myself paying someone to clean if I'm running around tidying up before "the help" arrives.

But, after some thought, I acknowledge that there are certainly less satisfactory ways to spend your money if you really REALLY despise vacuuming that much.

I may get her this one...

But if the maid service doesn't materialize after all, I'll consider getting her this next magnet in lieu of the one above.

I think she would appreciate the sentiment.

Someone has to set a bad example, after all. And I love her for it. :)

These are hilarious! My coaster at work says "she was nothing but a man-chasing booze hound....why can't you be more like her?"

Momo said...

Ha! I absolutely love these! I want EVERYTHING!

Tai said...

Oh, there WILL be maid service.

;)

No one really wants me running around setting a bad example, now do they!?!

(I love those magnets, I have a whole collection of the cards as well, they always make me smile.)

This is not going to turn into a garden blog, is it? I miss the bits concerning the pagan rituals. :p

Those are all so great!
I'm in the market for some nifty magnets,I love that you did this post!

A maid doesn't have to be over the top. If you spend the time you would normally be cleaning, working, she will pay for herself. Sort of.

Hi Spider

My cousin has one that I love, it says: "You hardly ever hear of a woman shooting her man while he was doing the dishes"...

Hey Spider Girl!

I like those magnets! What a good idea!

I'm similar to what you described...I'd probably clean up before the maid arrived too...(or at the very least get the butler to tidy up a bit)...

I hope all is well these days!

Take care out there!

Your Pal,

Zambo.

P.S.
I imagined various ape-oriented magnets with amusing captions as I read your post...But this shall most likely pass before I take any action to actually set up a few for fun...

As someone who has the first magnet on her *own* refrigerator, may I suggest another one of mine for your friend ~ it reads "So much to do, so few people to do it for me." Just a thought. >:)

I think 'funny' fridge magnets are silly and juvenile. Only avery immature person would have them all over his fridge.

Spider Girl said...

Hey, Chris: I like the one on YOUR fridge that says:

"Everything I know I learned from killing smart people and eating their brains. " :)

CiscoKid said...

All women love those magnets, I think they are funny!

I know a married couple that have a maid and it really threw me off. Maybe I am just too cheap. One day when I am 70 I will think about how much time I wasted cleaning the shower tile, if I don't die of cancer from the amonia fumes first.

Chris said...

Nothing wrong with getting a maid. And it's not just because I'm lazy... it's mainly to keep the little woman from killing me when I leave my socks all over our little apartment. She may be small but she's vicious.

Wow Tai!

Assuming the role already!
