Guest Blog – A day in the life

20 Feb

by: His brother and His brother’s girlfriend

Salutations and a good day to you, readers of His, Hers, and Theirs. Seeing as Him and Her are on vacation this week you are momentarily stuck with His Bro and his GF as your posters. This is unfortunate as the GF and I are not exactly what you would call “yuppies.” This is mainly due to our unfortunate choices in degree programs (stay away from a BA, seriously) and to our apartment building recently becoming uninhabitable.

Nothing says “underachiever” quite like moving back in with your parents.

But enough background; what you want is THE HAPS (as all you hip and urbane youth call it). So, without further ado, here is a rundown of our day:

We ate breakfast prepared and served by the GF’s mom. Apparently there is an upside to moving in with you mother-in-sin. (Since she is not technically my mother-in-law, “mother-in-sin” is the only logical nomenclature. Though it does sound suspiciously like a porn title…)

We played board games with the GF’s parents. Ironically, we played The Yuppie Game. It’s just like Monopoly, except instead of money, you are pursuing—well, also money, but ALSO just the right possessions and lifestyle to qualify you as truly worthy of the Yuppie title. Even more ironically, we quit the Yuppie Game before anyone won. Yes, we gave up on yuppiedom even outside of real life.

We then ate dinner prepared and served by the GF’s mom. It was at this point that the GF and I remembered that we had promised to do a guest blog post for Him and Her. After some minor quibbling over the topic, we quickly realized that we needed to do something exciting to cap the day off, something that would provide us with the fascinating material with which to dazzle and entertain the readers of His, Hers, and Theirs.

We did laundry.

I’m sorry, dear readers, truly I am. Perhaps in the distant future we will do something of interest. Until that time, keep hoping Him and Her arrive back safe, sound, and fast. For your sakes, hope it’s fast.
