Re: The First World Problem Thread

The person I am married to was suppose to be getting me ice cream, but he forgot.. and instead put the ice cream back into the freezer so now it's frozen hard.

I'm gutted.

How are you going to dispose of the body when the freezer is full?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Empty ice cream cartons come in very handy for chopped up body parts.

Waste not, want not, eh?

So... do you think there is a connection between him "forgetting" to take ice cream out of the carton, and your desire for empty cartons?

None of this helps, JagWaugh..

I do not want to think. I want ice-cream.

Try to focus on something else. Whatever you do don't think of blackcurrant and white chocolate ice cream... that would be an unfortunate thing to think of.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Thanks for reminding me I have a box of black currant sorbet in my freezer. I don't eat ice-cream so need to be reminded FWP like, yeah!

Swisstree - sorry you got forgotten. Bite him.

Ooh, I found an expired vanilla one, too.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Just realized I like to be forgotten when:

the keys or a phone goes missing;
the washing machine stops working;
kids are fighting;
food needs cooking;
during mayhem and loud noises, crashing/banging, accidents happening
dramas of any sort..

but remembered for:

ice-cream
chocolate
cups of tea
the odd hug

not difficult, eh?

Am I getting this right? Any sentence which begins with the word "Mommy" or your name you'd prefer were directed at some other being. Sentences involving food or love you like.

Hmn... so your inner you is either a mistress, a daughter, or possibly a dog.

What kind of ice cream are you pining for? If you are in fact a dog you won't be able to specify which.

It is a good poem you just wrote..Mom used to call her "A Kitchen Poetry".

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Found this earlier and it did the trick - rebooted my tired head.

Hidden in the guardian "The lost albums loved by the stars from ecstatic gospel to Italian prog"

What a treat! Like a rich and eclectic mix deep from the belly of Radio 6.

Did consider it, but then realized he was needed to carve out all the pumpkins today.

Now that is what I call the basis for a long lasting marriage.

"There may be better ones about, but once a year he makes a complete mess of the kitchen and balcony table which makes my kids happy. With a bit more ice cream and the odd hug or two he would be unbearably perfect."

You wouldn't happen to have an older sister would you?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Do I, or do I not, use the passive-aggressive broom left by our front door by our terminally tidy neighbour, to fashion the riot of red-orange leaves he has swept from in front of his house to in front of our house into a potentially inflammatory symbol? Or do I send Little Rufus out in her wellies to play in them and not sweep them anywhere?

A quandary indeed.
