And it's like this every. single. morning.

While rushing to leave for work:

Me: "Okay, are you ready to leave?"

The Prince: "Yep, I think so."

Me: "Get the keys, we're outta here."

The Prince *feeling his face*: "Do you think I need to shave?"

Me: "It doesn't matter if you do, I'm supposed to be at work right now. We are super late. Let's go."

The Prince: "But do I look like a dirty greaseball?"

Me: "No, come on, move along."

The Prince: "I think I'm gonna shave. Hang on."

Me: "NOOOOOOOO. Why do you ALWAYS do this to me?!"

The Prince: "I'm sorry! I work with people! I can't look dirty!"

Me: "Whoa whoa whoa. You work with people? What are implying? Are you saying I work with chimps or something? And what do you MEAN you can't look dirty? Are you saying that I LOOK DIRTY?!?!"

The Prince: "No! I'm just trying to shave! Shut up, I need to focus."

Me: "I think you use way too much shaving cream, for the record. You look like Santa. GINGER Santa."

The Prince: "Can you just go eat some cereal or something? As in get out of the damn bathroom?"

Me: "No can do, my dear. I feel I have to stay here and apply pressure to the situation, because if I don't, you might dilly-dally."

The Prince: "Did you just say 'dilly-dally'?"

Me: "Yes?"

The Prince: "I knew you were older than me, cougar of mine, but wow, now you're my grandmother."

Me: "YOU ARE SUCH A JERK."

The Prince: "Who says dilly-dally? Seriously? Who, other than you?"

Me: "All the cool kids? I don't know, but you have shaving cream inside your ear at this point."

The Prince: "No I don't."

Me: "Yes you do, ginger Santa."

The Prince: "Don't call me that!"

Me: "DON'T DILLY-DALLY."

The Prince:  "Calm down. It's not like you're ever on time for work anyway."

Me: "Who ARE you? My mother?!"

The Prince: "Perhaps, but you're still a grandma for saying 'dilly-dally.'"

Me: "Screw this, I'm going to go get in the Jeep."

The Prince: "Careful, it's kind of a high vehicle to get into- wouldn't want to break a hip."

Me: "GINGER SANTA."

And I'm not even kidding, you guys: it's like this every morning.

Sincerely,

    2. I cannot wait to hear how that goes over. Would it be better to say we are the shit or we are the shits? After typing that sentence out I realized the first is probably better.

  3. OMG I have literally been dealing with mornings w/ T and it is just awful! I'm gonna have to get up earlier to get ready on my own bc he drives me nuts. I have to leave by 720. (or else a bunch of 7th grade german students will be running amok) so at 715, T-Slav is still in his underwear and he's peeling carrots to make smoothies! He's been up 45 minutes and that's what he's doing. Omg. Drives me nuts. SO glad to hear someone else has a guy who's gotta do one last thing to make you late leaving the house!

    2. I feel your pain, girl! I hate when they're mesmerized and just don't listen!

  4. I'm totally on your side for this one. I say dilly dally all the time and I'm not a bajillion years old. Tell Ginger Santa that he's clearly not a cool kid and that he will be walking to work the next time he isn't ready on time.

  5. I use the phrase Dilly-Dally now and then, but I prefer "doddle." I'm 36. I do not think this makes me a grandpa.

    1. ohhh doddle! I must whip that one out tomorrow morning!

      You aren't a grandpa, don't worry. :)

  6. Oh.My.Gosh! My husband does this...seriously...EVERY SINGLE TIME we have to be somewhere. He doesn't mind being a little late and to me being late is the absolute worst thing that I can be. Even being 5 minutes early feels late to me. I swear I have an anxiety attack every time we have to go somewhere together! And I have moved on from Dilly Dally to "Stop dicking around"...it seems much more harsh in my eyes :)

  7. Hahaha I feel for you. Joe is like this too. Not as extreme time taking as shaving but I'll be ready. At door. Lookin' good, smellin' fresh and he'll decide he needs to do laundry or make the bed or do the dishes. It infuriates me.

  10. I feel like I just read a conversation I have with my husband quite frequently. I am just lucky I don't have to wait for him to get to work. because he definitely is a dilly-dallier.

    also, I say dilly-dally on a daily basis.

    also, you're hilarious.

  12. This sounds familiar. Like my boyfriend waits till the last possible second to do the most unnecessary things, i.e. - work on his broken iPhone because "Hey! The new screwdriver I ordered came in!" Oh dear lord...

    And I also say dilly dally quite often. Because that's exactly what he does.

  15. I've got me a ginger husband, but I don't bring it up. He has shaved his head for the last 20 years in rebellion against his red head. It's a touchy subject. We pretty much argue like this too.

  18. This morning, my fiance called me to pick him up from a meeting he had at work. I said "I still have to take a shower before I go to work. I can come get you if you are ready to get in the car the second I get there." He agreed.

    I got there. Waited. I texted him. Waited.

    Why do we all put up with this again? ;)

  20. I just wish Angel would actually care to shave! He hates it, so six days out of seven he doesn't. What he does have to do every day is "do his hair". I have significantly more hair than he does but I'm always waiting on him to be ready to go!

    1. Ohh yes, The Prince has to do his hair every day too. and he takes such a long time! Makes no sense!
