Our Economic Stimulus Payment was direct deposited last week. However there was about $300.00 missing from it. You know, the amount of one child. Today, the postman delivered a letter from the IRS which explained the payment. It confirmed that we have only one child. While I was on hold, I clicked at eTrish:

me: oh, I’m on hold with the IRS

Patricia: Yikes. You’ll never get that part of your life back…

me: I have someone* working with me to find out why I seem to only have one child according to the IRS. I have two kids right?

Patricia: yes, last time I checked….

me: The IRS is telling me I don’t

Patricia: Do you have to threaten to send the kids to them?

me: I would… Summer camp at the IRS!!! Pack your abicus.

Patricia: do they have SSN’s? I’m sure they do, that’s a stupid question. Hand the phone to Elly

;- )

me: Currently, she’s busy making Saralyn cry.

Patricia: even better. They can both get in on it.

me: I’m Truely in hell – I’m on hold wiht the IRS and the baby is crying…

Patricia: I’m sure there’s worse versions of hell….afterall, your toilet could be overflowing.

me: Elly is diaperless.

Patricia: diaperless as in “pottytrained” or diaperless as in “running around butt-nekkid?”

me: Butt Wait – Wait . THis is my lucky day ! The words “we are going to allow that” have just been said to me by an IRS agent

Patricia: [eyes rolling] Well, that’s mighty decent of them.


24 and a half minutes! THat’s all it took to have my second child. Let’s see if the check ever comes….

* my IRS agent’s name was #8901198.  Really.  How can I be more than a number to someone who introduced herself as #8901198?  Ugg.  It’s a black, black hole there.
