Oliver, still looking a bit peaked from his flu


Oliver woke up again this morning at about 5:00 am, hacking away. To his credit, though, he didn't wake his brother by turning on the light and instead used his flashlight and made his way to the living room where he turned on Duck Dynasty. I went back to bed and dreamed the craziest dreams that I won't go into here, but suffice it to say they included ex-husbands, dogs replacing babies, crevices in the hallway, and bank robbery. Oliver told me that at some point mid-Duck Dynasty, he came to my room and peered in at me, wondering if he should wake me up again. He told me this while I was toasting his English muffin and thanking him for being so less dramatic than he'd been the night before.

I was gonna wake you up and cuddle with you but from the doorway you looked sort of like a gorilla in bed.

Reader, the vanity is slipping away from me, at least the last remnants of it.

  1. Dreams and Duck Dynasty seem to be common threads on the interwebs this morning.
    Once Jessie slept with me and told me the next day that when I snored, I sounded like a dying moose.
    This did not make me want to let her sleep with me more often.
    They should do a study to see if people who are childless have more vanity than people who do not.

  3. Does he know how lucky he is that he's so cute?

    Honestly. He told you that while YOU WERE TOASTING HIS ENGLISH MUFFIN.

    I think he owes you a foot massage and a cup of tea this afternoon. And a cuddle. ;-)

  6. Ha! Hilarious!

    What is this "Duck Dynasty" that you and Ms Moon are writing about?! Clearly I need to catch up on some element of American pop culture...

    Oh, and re. dog chew toys, have you tried a Kong? They really are virtually indestructible and yet soft enough for dogs to chew. The hollow, cone-shaped ones seem stronger than the Kong ball.

  7. I love that you find the humor in all this. Anyway, don't listen to Oliver.

    You're a dish.

    My word verification is "lookshot"
