It’s always a risk to take St. Bob into public, but not for the reasons you might suspect. It’s because he gets me laughing until I cry, fall down, or both.
Luckily, this time I had a chair.
I had been invited to the annual Sacramento Women’s Expo last Saturday, since I appear frequently on Good Day Sacramento as the YouTube Mom. And it was great fun greet many of my viewers and subscribers, as well as to run a few of my “life hack” videos, as well.
St. Bob, of course, always helps me schlep in all my props, a tremendous help. But then he sits there and gets me laughing until my face is so red I appear to be choking to death.
One of my videos shows you how to tell if a loaf of bread is fresh by checking the color of the little plastic tag on the bag (see it here). Each color stands for a day of the week, and the colors are in alphabetical order.
So St. Bob gets the ingenious idea to make a nose ring out of a bread tag. Yes, folks, this is how his brain works. And, of course, he thinks it’s ingenious because it’s completely free, interchangeable with other colors, and one size fits all.
Suddenly I can picture an entire Alzheimers’ home filled with seniors wearing these nose rings so everyone will know what day of the week it is (Oh—look at all the blue nose rings! It must be Monday!) and my husband will be hailed as a trendsetter.
And that, my friends, is why he gets Saint status. (By the way, I want to say, “Don’t try this at home,” but surely you’re smart enough not to do this!)
