My saturday

So yesterday I'm feeling all smug at what I accomplished so I say to JP, "Today I painted the front and back door, gardened and did laundry. What did you do?"
(thinking I'd put him in his place, and feeling quiet superior -big EGO!)

And he replied "Fed the machine the did all that"
(he did make me breakfast, lunch and dinner yesterday)

Well. Not exactly the answer I was looking for. But definitely a correct one that's for sure.

I had a moment like that once long ago. I had helped my grandmother pack and move one weekend, and was proud of myself. I mildly whined to a friend of mine about my righteous weekend and asked him what he did. He then told me he had jumped into the ocean and fought for a hour with the tide before he rescued a child from drowning in the rip tide. I had to abashedly admit that he won that one.

Wow. Both great deeds - I guess it's all about timing in a situation like that one!
