What’s gives you that idea?

Well, you’re packing. And I don’t mean heat!

SSPX0001

You’re right. I am packing.

You are seriously packing. Not just for a day….

SSPX0006

You’re right, Thorin.

You’re even packing business clothes.

SSPX0002

I plan to be gone a few days. We’re heading to the coast, so we plan to make a few days of it.

We?

Me and Spawn.

Oh. Must be a serious business trip, business clothes, more than one suitcase…you’re  taking jewelry?

SSPX0004

This is NOT mithril! And what is this?

SSPX0003

Those are my Cornelia Marie and Time Bandit hearts. In case we go somewhere for dinner.

Ah, this ‘we’ again. If you wish jewelry, I have an entire mountain…

I’ll keep that in mind, Thorin.

This is… pink…

SSPX0199

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH!!!! TWO OF THEM!

2perfumes

Sheesh. They smell nice.

Well, as this is a serious. You’re packing the kindle. 

SSPX0195

Never go without it. Also the charger.

Have you packed your meds?

SSPX0196

Oh.  What about your carb tabs? Your blood sugar crashes too easily-

SSPX0193

Your blood glucose meter?

SSPX0192

You know,  this looks JUST like your flash drive case!

glucose

Oh.

Don’t you trust me?

Trust no one. Your inha-

SSPX0189

sigh.

You’re taking HIM?

SSPX0194

Yes.

AH! My arch-nemesis! We meet again! I’ll bet you’re taking HIM too!

SSPX0184

No. POP!Thorout isn’t going!

You know, you’ve been quite mean! Just because I like to crawl a round the externals, you moved me to the bookshelf and I’ve spent months  on your night stand, by your mug and books-

Where we read together every night.

Tru-dat.

I even read the dirty parts to you.

Yesssssssssssssssssss….Great Mahal! What is all of this???

SSPX0190

It’s my knitting bag, Thorin.

You knit?

Badly, but I enjoy it.

Dear Mahal,  I’ve fallen and I can’t get up! I can’t see over the edge!

SSPX0188

I”m drowning in yarn! Why do you need all this?

I plan to be gone through Tuesday and if Spawn drives or if I’m up late, I’ll have something to do.

I’ll give you something to do! Wanna play with my sword???

SSPX0197

You are incorrigible.

What weapons of mass destruction are these?

SSPX0183

Those are knitting needles, Thorin.

Don’t tell Thranduil! He is  completely enamored of shiny, pointy things! He thinks he has to have everything.

Perish the thought.

So… I  was thinking…

Yes?

There is room for me! I can sneak in right here! Keep your health sundries safe from evil luggage orcs!

SSPX0006

No, Thorin.

Sigh.

SSPX0185

Are you sure I can’t go? Surely I can stay with the-

Thorin. Get down from there. I’ll bet you drove your mother nuts.

My mother did not have nuts. She was female! How truly insulting.

Sigh.

Mahal’s Balls! Look at all this luggage! Just for… what? 3 days?  This doesn’t include your computer, which I know you’re bringing as well! WOMEN! I packed less when I took The Company to take back The Lonely Mountain! Can you imagine if we had taken Dis or any of the wives with us? WAGONS! HO! We’d have never made it!

SSPX0182

Thorin!

I wanna go!

C’mere…

SSPX0181

I’m going?

Roadtrip, buddy!  Just  don’t…

Great! Shut the door, crank this sucker and let’s go! Do you have tunes? I hope you packed some tunes! Any Dwarven Heavy Metal? Dwarven Chants? No Elf Music! I can’t cope. That stuff puts me to sleep.

last

Are we there yet?

Sigh…

Yes, I’m going on a business trip.  Yes, I’ll be gone through Tuesday. We’re going to coast. And yes Spawn is going with me, we hope to do some beach combing this time and hope this trip is successful.

And yes, He’s going with me. I hope I survive…
