Under my umbrella ella ella!

Husband: Why is there a school umbrella in the hall?

Me: I've always had a school umbrella; usually it's kept in my classroom for when I move around the site, but it was raining the other day and I'd left my umbrella in the car, so I used the school one instead, which was then in my boot, so when I went to pick daughter up from Rainbows and it looked like rain I took it out of my boot and carried it. That's why it's in the hall.

Husband: Nothing is ever simple with you, is it?

Me: Well you asked!

Too funny!
I sometimes am too tired for giving an explanation and will ask my husband if he really wants to know. Sometimes he's asking a question for the sake of asking. If that's the case, I usually just tell him 'because it is'. He rolls his eyes at me.

Glad to know I'm not the only one that gives 'never simple' answers...to me I'm just answering the question clearly!

Couldn't think at first why your title gave me a weird sense of deja vous - then realised you watched 'Over the Rainbow' at the weekend, didn't you? (Either that or Dr Who and I don't think it was in Dr Who!)

We say it best, when we say nothing at all!
Saves a lot of energy!
Also...isn't that a song?

If you had said 'because it is' you would also have been wrong! Men they are never happy....lol

Mine has taken to saying 'Yes Dear' I feel about 90 when he says that.

I leave these wee contraptions everywhere I go. I have a collection of telescope versions scattered around but guess what? I forget to take them and still get drenched! Sunglasses - just the same. I can never keep either on my person for when I need them. My mother was a teacher - clear, concise answers is the nature of the job!

Hahaha...oh that sounds like me and my husband! After a long explanation, he will say "Is that a long way of saying yes?" or something like that.
