loves surprises, but not very good at them
I had a day today, and this post just made me laugh. Thanks Gregg!Heres a fun one. I dont think I will cuss though because im too lazy to find the right icon for it. So.. picture this... you are sleeping. You are starting a new exercise program first thing in the morning (5:30am) and are excited, but need your sleep. You take the first hit at about 2:30am when you notice that your 2.5 year old daughter has snuck into your bed like a ninja. She is awake, tossing and turning and eventually says out loud "I want milk please." Ugh... you roll out of bed and trudge into the kitchen where you open the cabinet for a sippy cup... open the fridge... get the milk... pour the glass of milk.. put the lid on and give it to her. She then proceeds to slurp while in bed very loudly. Eventually, probably after about 45 minutes you drift back off to sleep. You are sleeping on your back. Your eyes blink open to the uneasy realization that you are being watched, or there is an unusual presence in the room... you know the feeling. You gently look to your right and standing 12 inches from your face is a figure, cloaked in darkness, utterly silent. "@#@#$ you scared the @#$@ out of me!" She (Meredith, 9) begins to cry. She explains that she heard a noise upstairs and she cant sleep. You follow her upstairs and sit on her bed and listen for the apparent "beeping" noise. Nope, no noise after 15 minutes of staying there. You kiss her goodnight again and head back down. Now you are revved up because your adrenaline is still flowing from the scare. You eventually drift back off at 4:00am and sleep through your 5:30am alarm to start your workout program and sleep until your wife rolls out of bed at 6:30am. Poo!
