The other night I was making sausage and tomatoes in a red wine sauce and while it was simmering I got involved in something else and sort of, well... forgot about dinner.
Mr. Logo came through the door which reminded me that there was, in fact, a world outside my own mind and so quickly made my way to the kitchen where my sauce had become a thick reduction. It's a good thing I caught it just then; it would have burnt within a minute or two. Mr. Logo watched all this with a bemused expression on his face and I explained, "I uh, got distracted."
"I know," he said. "That happens, it's just another charming part of who you are."
Feeling understood, and appreciated, and loved I said,
"Really?"
He shrugged, "Well, it seemed like the appropriate thing to say."


There is a moral in that story somewhere for someone. I'm just sure of it.
Alternately, I'm just rambling and...oh look! A chicken!

My derived moral is that was one of the sweetest thing I've read in a while. Good job Senor Logo.

He was so close to saying something sweet, and then he intentionally ruined it. Sounds like my kind of guy.

LOL...very funny.

That's funny. I don't think he was supposed to actually tell you that he just thought it was appropriate, even though most guys say such things for that exact reason.

Awwwww how sweet of Mr. Logo!

I was scrolling through a couple of your previous posts and I have to say that I like the breakfast room. The new color in there looks exactly like the color in my daughters room. It is a very fresh bright color.

Take care and if I don't make it back around before my surgery Tuesday I wish you and your family and very Happy Thanksgiving!

HUGS!
