May I Introduce You?

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.


Last week I outed my husband and his best friend...




Aren't they cute? And, so happy together.


So, it only seems fair to share MY best friend with you.


Derek and I go way back.


He cleans my entire house without complaining, gripping, or getting distracted. Every time I ask! He lets me direct him, guide him, and tell him exactly what needs to be done and precisely how I want it to be done. (He doesn't even miss the toilet when he does his business!)


My favorite thing about Derek is his willingness to dance with me. All around the house. Anytime of day. EVERY day. Sometimes he lets me lead.


He and I even share some of the same pet peeves. He can't stand crumbs, dirt, or cat hair. When he comes across such debris, he is on a mission to rid our home of it. I mean, how can you not love a man like that?!


Meet my best friend...



Derek, the Dyson!

Isn't he dreamy? He looks great in yellow, if I do say so myself.

I hope we remain friends forever. Oh, how I love him! But, unlike Nurse Boy and his beloved remote, I am willing to share my best friend. While Derek does make my heart beat faster, I love him even more when he is under the direction of someone else in our home.


Ah, yes! That's more like it!

As a matter of a fact, I am hoping that one day Derek and Nurse Boy will become the best of friends...

Derek is a Jerk! I will stick with Ramona the remote. She is always willing to let me push her buttons, and she has a mute.

Omigosh @ Mr Nurse boys comment. Silly man... Do you not see how easily you can be replaced?

If only you could teach Derek to cook. =D

She also looks EXACTLY LIKE THE ONE MOTH HAS.

I'm not sure how to tell you this, NB, but I think Ramona is a floozy.

Yep - Ramona does get around - We have her and her twin sister Rhonda here....

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

I don't care what you jealous women say about my Ramona. She is always here when I need her.

Except when the kids are monopolizing her time. Oh crap, we must be married.

As always the comments are as funny as the post that inspired them!

Next time I'm getting a Derek. I want one that can stand on it's own, hasn't got a kinked up old hose, is low maintenance, doesn't need to accessorise... the list is endless. Though Darren the Dyson with the big ball looks like he might be a bit easier to push around... but after having to drag Harry around here I'll take anything.

He will still have to deal with spending large amounts of time alone in the dark cupboard with nothing but toilet paper and shoe polish for company. Just coz I want him doesnt mean I'll use him.

Imperfect Mom said...

Poor Harry with his kinked up old hose and big ball envy.

I am dying laughing here! At the comments, no less! Now, that is pretty good when your comments are just as entertaining as your post, Mrs. NB! LOL
Don't you just hate when they HAVE to mention that THEIR remote has a MUTE button?!?! Grrrrr! My husband has Ramona's cousin Rosie in his grasp even as we speak!

Ruby Red Slippers said...

Too funny-I have a pink one :) and I love it-especially when others are using her!

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

I just found out that Derek is named after Derek from "Dancing with the Stars". He is the one who looks like Ken, and his sister looks like Barbi. The Dyson is even blond. I would be offended if I had not already told Mrs. that I would leave her for Martha Stewart, or Trumps daughter. Does the fact that I don't even know her name doom the relationship?

Boy Mom said...

I think I have a crush on Derek, that sleek build, those golden highlights, and secure enough to let a man, or women push him around! Derek, sigh... I'm dreaming of you!

Don't let anyone talk bad about Ramona NB! She's hawt!!
