After our school shut down due to the coronavirus and we had to close down our after-school program, I brought home the large doll I crocheted for the kids. I didn’t want to leave her there all alone. My hubby always complains that when she’s in the house, she scares him when he least expects it. This was no exception.
I had her on the couch–and predictably–she spooked him a few times. Success!
I decided to be a good sport and move her…into his office…when he wasn’t looking. Obviously I was trying to spook him. But to my chagrin, he didn’t even notice her. She was propped up in his armchair right next to his computer! It’s the first thing you see when you walk into his office! Needless to say, after he didn’t notice her for awhile, I pointed her out while he was sitting at his desk–two feet from his head. 😂
We decided that that would be her new home…until I walked into my office–and didn’t notice her either. I basically walked right past her to get to my desk and didn’t see her. But when I turned around…Bam! She spooked me!
In my defense, it was midnight and I was focused on applying for unemployment. The system crashed during the day so I opted to try at a godawful hour so I’d have a better chance at success. No such luck. Apparently, they have hours you can apply online (what?!) and they didn’t start till 2 am (double what?!).
After my doll spooked me, I went back to bed. I went to sleep and woke up at 3 am (you read that right–3 am!) so I tried the unemployment system again. I was grateful I was finally able to get through the whole process with no glitches.
When I was done with all that at 4 in the morning, I said goodnight to the doll. In the morning (later morning), I found her a permanent spot.
She’s much happier now and can greet me when I walk into my office…no spooking involved.
So to recap:
She scared hubby, so I moved her into his office (so I could scare him)…where he didn’t notice her–even though she was very obvious–and I had to point her out. He tried to scare me by moving her into my office where I didn’t notice her…at first. But she did manage to scare me.
She gets moved to a permanent location where she scares nobody.
Applying for unemployment during the apocalypse SUCKS.
Stay sane everyone!
