I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don’t believe I deserved my friends…

             -Walt Whitman

You know what’s funny?

The TV show Modern Family
This cat video
The Hangover movie
Ray Steven’s song The Streak
Words like comeuppance, indubitably, pluck and duty

Oh, and farts.
CGMan thinks farts are funny, as do most men, apparently.

You know what’s not funny?

Having your best friends short sheet your bed. In your own house!
Yes, we are 12.

Truth be told, it really was kinda funny.

Especially because CGMan, who had learned his lesson about being the first one asleep, managed to stay awake until everyone went to bed. However, whilst he was staying awake, he was partaking of the libations, making it impossible for him to notice that he had crawled between “short sheets”. The more he flailed about, the more tangled he became, all the while cursing that something was wrong with the bed. “What the HELL? The bed is broken! I can’t make it work”  It took some effort, but I finally convinced him to get off the bed, so I could remove what looked like his toga, and put the bed back together. At the same time, sending nasty text messages to the basement guest room.

The next morning, it was reported that the Mr. of the duo made sure all the doors were closed and locked in the basement. Just in case. I’m pretty sure they slept comfortable in the knowledge that we are new to the city and wouldn’t know where to hide the bodies anyway.

Oh, for the comforts (and acreage) of the suburbs.

You know what, though? We are thankful to have such devilish good friends. The four of us have shared 15 years of ups and downs, goods and bads and through it all, we have never run out of things to make us laugh.

And really, isn’t that what friends are for?



  1. Your post made my morning. Literally laughed until my stomach hurt. Thank you.

  2. I like it when you don't have the blahhhhhhhhhsssss. You are too funny and pretty cute too.

  3. AHHHH you went to NYC! Was it fabulous!

    Also I busted out laughing pictuing your husband flailing about yet unable to figure out what was wrong with the bed. Classic.

  4. Hahahahahaha!!! Now, THAT is some good friends right there! I am so in love with this story.

    I will keep chuckling all day just thinking about it!

  5. I don't think my farts are funny at all. In fact, I have to carry a special permit when I go out. :)

  6. Oh gosh, that's funny. (I did have to google short sheets - why haven't I heard of that before?)

  7. Who the heck are those young people in that picture???

  8. Great picture and I so love both of your bangs! To funny and your post always give me a good laugh! Thanks.

  9. I can't get the visual of Steve in a Toga out of my head. Recently it was Steve's 10 little piggies, now this. It's taken me years to get Steve the "SUMO" basketball player out of my head. Now thats a SCARY kodak moment. Love you guys

  10. I had those same bangs in 1996! Sounds like a great weekend! Oh, and paybacks are hell.


I would love to hear what you have to say!
