My Kind of Gardening

Do you love the people that your people love? It's tough when your friends marry people that you aren't sure about or don't click with or want to drown in a puddle of their own spit. It's awesome when they marry someone that you love so much you wish your friend had found them sooner so you could have spent more time with them. On occasion I have even lost the friend and kept the spouse. That's dicey, even I'll admit, but you love who you love, right?

Turns out the same things happen with blogs. I find that there are some non-blogging spouses out there that I wish I knew more about. Julie Rummel-Hudson is one of them and Krissy Scalzi is another. The other day John posted a snippet of a political conversation with his lovely wife, Krissy, and, folks, I think I have my new catch phrase. Go over here and read the back story so you know what I mean when I say, "Mulch, and start over!"


  1. I was always naive enough to think that the people I love would only love other people I would love.

    But, I've had occasion to be completely bowled over by some of the trolls that my loved ones take for partners.

    In other news, "Mulch, and start over!" is going to sweep the nation.

    If we mulch and start over we're going to have some wicked fertile ground because Bush is so full of shit.

  3. I think I've just found my new favorite response to bullshit!

  4. SDM, it's disappointing isn't it? Makes everything a little sticky.

    Right on Julia!

    Chili, it's sure as shit my new best response. I love Krissy!

    I for one am very happy to be the spouse you kept! It really means a lot to me.
