My Wife The Witch

Tonight is the night. If you don’t know what that means, then welcome back from solitary confinement, bud.

My beloved works for Barnes and Noble. She “gets to” dress up as a Hogwarts professor and conduct a midnight party for the screaming mob of rugrats and their bankrolls parents. She couldn’t be one of the professors in the book, however, so she had to make up her own costume and persona. Flossie Slapcabbage is a pet name that her father used to annoy her with, so that’s what she’s going with. At press time, she still didn’t know what she was professor of exactly…

To compound the excitement, hers is one of like 4 BN’s in the country that is in a mall, rather than a standalone box. Not only that, but it’s positioned in the mall right next to the movie theater… not only that, but tonight is opening night for The Hulk (not even counting how many teenie boppers might be headed to this monstrosity).

Then she gets to work Saturday, too.

I’m thinking somebody’s gonna need a nap before this weekend’s over.

    Um, she might need a flower too. You should go buy her one. But don’t tell her I told you to 😉

    Yikes! Sounds like just the kind of party I’d love to miss. 😉 Like working in retail on the day after Thanksgiving. Or Superbowl Sunday. Or something. I hope she survives and you are there to give her a backrub (or flower) or something to help her unwind. I’d need a nap or three myself.

    You should get her some flowers and make dinner and stuff for her.
    Take care of her. But, it should be fun tonight. 🙂

    Oh that sounds like so much fun! *ducking as mrs. solonor throws rotten slapcabbage*

    I would trade places if I could. I wonder if our local B&N might need some temporary help for tonight only?…

    Great choice of name, btw.

    I think she should go as Professor Charmian, Mistress of Enchanments and Sleight-Of-Hand…. 🙂
    Of course, then there’d be the issue of the costume, which I would be very much interested in the final details of! (REALLY DUCKING, hopefully avoiding a Flail-up-side-the-head)
    Personally, I think it would be fun, but then again, I”m not like other people. Good luck, Mrs…. You’ve survived your husband, your kids, and your husbands friends, you’ll make it through this. 🙂

    I turned them all into newts, unfortunately they got better. Seriously, it was great fun. WILD, but fun.
