HIM,  upstairs:  “Do we have Alka Seltzer Plus?”

ME,   downstairs:  “Yes,  it’s in the cabinet.”

HIM,  upstairs:  “Where?

ME,  downstairs:  “It’s in the cabinet in the white bin.”

HIM,  upstairs:  “Where?”

ME,  downstairs:  “It’s in the cabinet in the white bin on the left side.”

HIM, from upstairs:   “Where?”

ME,  downstairs getting hot under the collar:   “It’s in the cabinet in the white bin on the left side in the box that says ALKA SELTZER PLUS.”

HIM,  upstairs:   “I can’t find it,   please come up!”

ME,  after storming up the stairs:  “Here it is!”

HIM:  “Thanks.   Have you seen my glasses?”

Characterizations: funny


  1. Laurie Levy says:

    This is so true, Dana. Unfortunately, in my household it runs both ways!

  2. Khati Hendry says:

    That is so evocative. Could be just funny or tragic. I hope the former.

  3. Perfect RetroFlash, and hilarious, Dee!

  4. John Zussman says:

    I resemble—I mean resent—that remark!

  5. Marian says:

    Ha, ha, ha, just like in my house, Dana, and I must say, it’s the man who is doing the asking. Sorry, guys!

  6. Suzy says:

    Very funny, Dana. I have to say that just might have happened in my house too.

  7. John Shutkin says:

    You nailed it, Dana. And may it remain sporadic, humorous and limited to Alka Seltzer Plus.
