Oh geez.... Makes me think of that old "Far Side" cartoon: "blah, blah, blah, pancakes, blah, blah, pancakes..."
Yeah... LOL! Guess Hank should have shortened it. He usually edits out a lot of their conversation, but this time he just wrote it ALL down...
Okay... Hank took pity on future readers and took a chunk out.

Oh no! That's not what I meant. Sorry. I just thought it was kinda endearing how the conversation always got back to pancakes. I worded wrongly.
Don't worry about it at all. :D When I was trying to read it for typos for Hank it was making me a little dizzy (granted, that's not very hard to do) so I had already been thinking it should be shortened, but went ahead and posted it anyway. (And you have NO idea the true extent of the "blah, blah, blah..." I have to put up with with Ed and Hank.)
After that email I sent you, I waltz in here to find showerin' and pancakes and pie goin' on, and Bill to boot!!
Jus' makes my mouth water (I'll leave it to you to guess why! ;D), an' my belly hurt from laughin'.
Thanks so much for this, Hank. Keep on writin' it all down.
:still holding my tummy:
Glad they made you laugh! Thanks for the email too, I will write back soon.
Here's the part I took out, so that you don't have to wonder (It's missing some italics, but I'm sure you can figure out where they'd go):
"Hey, Ed?""Yeah, Hank?"
“Tha’ somethin’ new yer tryin’ out?”
“Nah… jus’ got ma foot tangled in this here sheet… tryin’ ta get it freed up.”
“Ya got a leg cramp?”
“… Shit…! Yeah… Ow..!. Dammit!”
“Try ‘n walk it out…”
“Wha’ the hell… Ow… does it look like… Shit... I’m doin’?”
“Wan’ me ta rub it?”
“Nah… jus' gotta walk... think it’s gettin’ better. Damn…”
“Prob’bly ‘cause ya been kinda dehydrated on account a bein’ sick… Be sure ta drink lots a water ta day.”
“Shit... Think yer Dr. Phil, now?"
“Jeez… ‘m jus’ tryin’ ta help… ‘Sides don’ think he’s one a them kinda doctors.”
“Could he call his self a ‘doctor’ if’n he weren’t one?”
“I dunno... He's prob’bly a doctor a psychology or somethin’ like tha’.”
“Somethin’ ‘bout tha’ man I jus’ don’ like.”
“Don' think we ever even seen tha’ TV show a his.”
“No… But seen him… ‘n he’s got them crazy eyes…”
“Why the hell are we talkin’ ‘bout Dr. Phil?”
“Dunno… yer the one tha’ brought him up.”
"Coulda sworn ya did..."
“’Fraid this new year ain’t startin’ out very well…”
“Well… the year’s still awful young… think we can turn it ‘round if’n we try. Ya willin’ ta try?”
“I’m willin’ if’n you are.”
“’N if’n it don’ work this time we’ll jus’ go make some pancakes.”
“’S a deal…”
(After a little while longer is when Bill shows up.)
“Yeah… wet ‘n slippery… or clean ‘n dry… or hot ‘n dirty… or hot ‘n sweaty… or hot ‘n buttery… or sweet ‘n syrupy… or light ‘n fluffy…”
“Ya hungry, Ed?”
LOL! omg That is too funny.
Hey there! Ed and Hank are always happy to make you laugh!

You did it again. Hilarious...you tell the story in their own words, and let it unfold...dripping wet...pancakes. pie...
Happy New Year indeed!!
Give Hank my thanks for writing it all down...and my sympathy at having to clean up the water...and at having a guest arrive at just the most inopportune time!!
Thanks. Mighty glad ya liked it. Was worried that it might be disappointing when their very first shower together didn't turn out quite like Hank hoped it would. (btw, Ed did relent and help Hank clean up all that water. :) )
Hank must have been frustrated, to write the whole thing down. But it's nice that Ed is working on the whole shower thing--though it doesn't seem to be quite as thrilling as Hank mighta thought. Well, not in the way Hank might have thought.:-)
Ed and the pancakes...I didn't fall off the chair, but it was a near thing. And then, just when he gets back on track, Bill shows up with pie! Good thing Hank likes pie, too. But I'm betting he'll be online right quick, lookin for that shower head.;-)
I'm always happy to see the boys--nothing like a "steamy" interlude!
I think Hank understands that any first time might be awkward and fumbling. He's just glad Ed is willing to try it again. (Hank is happy that he stopped short of making you fall off your chair... wouldn't want you getting hurt! After all, Ed came close enough to hitting the floor :) )
Hmm nice interlude, I have had the same trouble with my man for 12 years I have tried to get him in the shower with me and a few months ago when I finally did get him in their didn't we break the shower doors and flooded the floor that leaked to the family room and lead to a new ceiling and new carpet and now he wants new wallpaper oh what an expensive shower it was but it was fun. I think next time though it will be cheapter to rent a hotel room for such water fun. JOe
Hi Joe, LOL! Loved your shower story. At least it only took you 12 years to get your partner in there, but sorry to hear how expensive it ended up being. Glad it was still fun!
LOL those two are SO cute. Trying to take a shower together. I think they need a bigger shower not only a showerhead.
too bad Bill showed up, I think they needed something to do during that hour they had to wait. Pancakes sound good, tell Hank to make extra :D
They definitely need a bigger shower. :D Don't know if they can afford to remodel that old house of theirs though, so they might just have to settle for the new showerhead. Your welcome to stop by for pancakes anytime. Ed and Hank have always got the ingredients on hand and they always make plenty. (For some reason I can't figure out, Ed's pancakes are always a little better than Hanks.)
