G and I are sanitizing the house in the wake of Monkey's 'swine flu' diagnosis, and he is really getting into it in the kitchen. I walk in and find him with the entire contents of our corner cupboard on the floor and him mopping the inside of the cupboard.
G: Can I just throw this away? (holding up a fondue set) It has moved with us every move for the past 12 years, and we have never taken it out of the box.
Me: That's not true!! We used it that one time.
G: Yes, one time....and then we put it in the box and left it there for 12 years.
Me: I like the IDEA of using it again.......but then I remember you setting the coffee table on fire.
