Cinco de Mayo is shaping up to be a big day for my stoopscape, the decor theme of which is Happy Hour In A Mexican Restaurant On Second Avenue in NYC.
In the 7 brief minutes of sunshine we had so far today, I planted two more pots while Sami ran around behind the mower making whatever dent he could in the product of Extreme Fertilization + 4″ of rain in one day.
The stoopscape is almost done now. I told Sami that if I could find a doorbell that played La Cucaracha, that would make it complete. Instead of getting the joke (or preemptively trying to nip something in the bud like he did when I suggested stringing chili pepper lights along the banister) he launched into speculation about where he could buy a wireless doorbell with multi-melody options.
Sometimes I worry if our lack of sync means our marriage won’t last.
