Bonus Post- Rachael's Pet Peeves

So, I'm sitting beside Rachael on the couch tonight, working on my new blog which will rate customer service at various local businesses. I will be evaluating at least one good and one bad business each week.

Anyway, Rachael keeps acting very strange. Now, regular readers of My Poor Husband or Life With Rachael know that Rachael acting a little strange sometimes is not necessarily a novel thing, but tonight was particularly interesting.

She kept shaking her head, saying 'Uuuuuuuoo!", sticking out her tongue, and cringing, all at the same time.

After about the 10th time of this, I thought she was preparing to have a seizure or something. I asked her what was wrong.

She told me she was thinking about people licking napkins.

I know, I know, we all sit around thinking about people licking napkins.

Nothing weird there.

Apparently she is writing a blog post about her pet peeves. One of which happens to be when she sees someone lick a napkin. In actuality, they don't even have to lick the napkin, as long as the napkin is in close proximity to the mouth. Which sometimes happens. It being a napkin and all.

Anyway, when she sees this happen, she says it's similar to the feeling you get when someone scrapes their fingernails on the chalkboard. (Does this even happen anymore? Do schools even have chalkboards?)

So, every time Rachael writes about this, she apparently relives the sensation.

It's actually quite funny to see, and I knew you'd want to hear about it.

As a bonus, I went to the kitchen, grabbed a napkin, licked it for Rachael to see, and took a picture of her reaction. Enjoy!

Faithfully yours,
The Poor Husband.
