When I come home between work and rehearsal, I feed the cats (and then I put the container with their food back where I found it). I get something to eat (and put my dishes in the sink or dishwasher). I change my clothes (putting the dirty stuff in the laundry basket). Still, for all the things I do, if you got there right after I left again, you wouldn't really be able to trace the steps I took, though you may guess some of what I did.
Not so with the Man.
When I come home from work, and he's already come home and left to go do something else, I can CSI the hell out of what he's done and almost every step he's taken. Why? EVIDENCE.
I know he took off one shoe when he entered teh kitchen and one shoe as he got to the refrigerator, because those shoes are still in those exact spots. I know he ate some cereal because the box is on the counter instead of put away and he doesn't roll down the inside bag (like I do, to prevent the cereal from getting stale). After that I believe ho took a shower because his pants and shirt are inside out on the bathroom floor among several small puddles. His toothbrush is on the sink and there is a gob of toothpaste near the faucet. His underwear is in the hallway. He appears to have sprayed the cats with water for one or more offenses. I know this because the spray bottle is not where I keep it near the bed, but on the dining table.
See? He's easy.
Now I wish I took a picture...
This weekend the Man is going on a sea-kayaking trip with some buddies and I will be all alone. Everything will be so tidy!
