the unobservant husband

flowers, unobservant husband
The suspect flowers
Thursday after work I ran by Hy-Vee to pick up a few things we had forgotten at the store the previous weekend.  While I was there, I spontaneously found and added a great fall flower bouquet to my cart.  It had been a crappy week and I figured why not.  I beat the husband home so I put away the few food items, dug a vase out of a 'too high to reach' cabinet and got the flowers in some water.  Then I went about my business.  The husband eventually came home, we fixed dinner (and by we I mean the husband), watched some shows and went to bed.

I'm sitting in BRGR the next day around lunch time with some friends when I get a text from the husband:

The Husband:  Where did these flowers come from?

Me:  I bought them.  They were there last night.

The Husband:  Nuh-uh

Seriously?

the asylum

reality tv, asylum, game show
A building exists in a random city in the middle of nowhere. Inside this building is a business. A business with 50 employees. A business creating commerce.  Or so they want you to believe. This “business” is actually a social experiment. Employees are legitimately hired and paid. But what the employees don’t know is they are there for one man’s entertainment. “Supervisors” and extra “employees” have been planted and “real” employees are subjected to beyond-absurd situations. Anyone who stays for 2 years without quitting will win $2 million. No one has lasted that long.

Welcome to The Asylum.  

Watch for episodes coming soon.
