curtain rods ROCK.

when you're married,
sometimes friday nights look like this:


& sometimes, your incredible husband slops on an apron & takes care of it for you.
score!

so today, trav & i went to Walmart to purchase a curtain rod.
because i have the cutest curtains in the known world,
& i need to hang them.
{let it be known that i have purchased 5 different rods at this point, all of which have failed me.}
{fist of rage!}

& so! there we were,
discussing curtain rods.

"this one will work!"
"but it's just like the other one."
"well... i think i broke the other one."
"you what?"

basically, we didn't know what we were doing.
we discussed a little loudly, with a confused tone in our voices, & quizzical looks on our faces
when we heard a muffled, squeaky squawk.

we looked over to the woman next to us & she was staring
in our direction, hand clasped over her mouth, trying to stifle her laughs.
she was totes laughing at us!
"ha! i'm sorry!" she said between fits of laughter," you two are just so funny!"

she proceeded to say that she was exactly where we were when she was 1st married,
& that we were a super cute couple.
with her help, we helped picked out a curtain rod just right for us.

moral of the story:
talk loud enough, old-ish women will laugh at you, and you get a curtain rod.

the end!

This story reminds me of the time when Jimmy and I were trying to pick out a candle at Yankee Candle. We smelled 90% of the candles they have and were fighting about all of them. An older couple laughed at us and helped suggest smells. It was awesome. (:

I should have tried this tactic, because I bought three different curtain rods, and forgot to take them back and now the return date expired and I have to wait to have more curtains to hang, woops.
