ME (to my Sidekick this morning): So, how about those eggs you were gonna make us?
SIDEKICK: Ohhhh! I forgot I was gonna make eggs!
ME: Grrr. Me starving.
SIDEKICK: How about I make it up to you with a grande decaf vanilla soy latte?
A few minutes later, my Sidekick returns with hot beverages.
ME: Aw. Thanks!
SIDEKICK: You're welcome.
ME (picking up cup): Owee. That's hot. You didn't bring a little cuff thingie?
SIDEKICK: What? No. I didn't. Sorry.
ME: But it's real hot. How am I gonna drink my delicious hot beverage if I can't pick it up?
SIDEKICK (rolls his eyes, shakes his head, laughs a little)
ME: Maybe there's an old one in the recycling.
I look through the recycling. Nothing.
ME: I guess I'll just have to fashion my own cuff thingie.
I begin the process of fashioning my own cuff thingie. It involves scissors and tape.
SIDEKICK (watching me): You weirdo, just use a paper towel for it.
ME (still fashioning): Why do you hate the earth so much? I'm recycling!
Twenty-five seconds later, I've completed my masterpiece.
ME: All done.
SIDEKICK: Oh my God, it's great!
SIDEKICK: You should take a picture of it.
ME: That's silly.
SIDEKICK: Take a picture of it for the blog!
ME: You kill me.
SIDEKICK: Do it.
Ladies and gentlemen, this morning with my Sidekick.
