Room To Spare

by — Apr 20, 2010

So four more months and Mazi will be headed to Lafayette College.

Which means… SPARE ROOM!

What? Ain’t no shame in my game. Before the back wheels on his suitcase get over the front door threshold good, I’m pulling the crime scene tape off his bedroom door, donating his bed to the Salvation Army (or maybe we should burn it), emptying the rest of that sucker out, and turning that bad boy into something really adult and special. At dinner last night, we all plotted what we’d do with our newfound space:

Mari: It could be a second guest room.

Nick: Exercise room!

Lila: I know! We could put a couch in there and hang some pictures and sit and look at them. Like a museum.

Me: Oooh! Oooh! I got it! *snapping my fingers, dramatic pause for emphasis* A craft room! I could move my sewing machine in there and make more drapes and practice drawing and doing collages and…

Mazi: *pouting* Um, we could leave it just the way it is.

Dead. Fish. Eyes.

C’MON, SON! #getdaf*ckouttaherewitdatbullsh&t!

  1. Awwww, I"m with Mazi, keep it the way it is. He's gonna need a place to stay when he comes home to visit. Get a day bed and make it your craft room/guest room.

    @Angela: We got several couches he can sleep on when he "visits." LOL!!!

  3. LOL…that was a very loud laugh for me…too funny!

  4. So the line about the wheels over the threshold had me cackling over here.

  5. LOL *dead* That's what they all say until they're gone. Then it's…"No, don't throw out that. We have to keep this. Because it reminds me of my baby!"

    @Mama C: Tee hee!!!
    @Quiskaeya: So what you're saying is I'm going to be a punk when the boy leaves? Uh uh, nope—not me. No ma'am. (whispers: okay, so you may have a point…)

    You're going to make the baby sleep on a random couch when he comes home for the Holidays and summer vacations?! LOL

  8. Interesting post. My sister and her hubby did the same thing. Turn that spare room into an adult area/tv/lounge area. Wonder what I will do when it is time for my one and only to go to college?
