it’s obvious that i’m a tad highly strung. at least to me. but sometimes stubs says exactly the wrong thing.
i’m a bit under the weather. which, may or may not have something to do with staying up dancing at a festivus party until 6 in the morning. in my defense i had an awesome dance partner. he was gliding me around the dance floor like a princess. man was it fun. i don’t usually like to me told what to do. but marty could have led me like a lemming the way he lovingly forced me this way and that. stubs had gone home hours ago. he can only take so much of people and then has to retreat back to the lair. i bet if he would have been dancing with marty, he would have stayed all night too.
wait what the heck was i on about? oh, right…stubs. we got a new humidifier. for the first time we plugged it in on his side of the bed. the first couple of nights he was raving about how well it worked. this is a direct reflection on me, of course, because i spent a bunch of time researching a humidifier (totally out of character). i have to say, from the beginning, i wasn’t as convinced of the wonderfulness of the humidifier. i was still waking up with my tongue stuck to my mouth (due to the fact that this could have been from the wine i so love, i kept my dry mouth shut). now that i have a little chest thing brewing (and haven’t had wine) i know it might be that my abundant research has failed.
i dropped a hint a few days ago about maybe plugging it in near the foot of the bed, so it could maybe moisten the air over the entire bed…not just his side. my request was met with a chilly response, so i let it go. this morning, i woke to find my lips sealed shut and my tongue resembling an old sponge that had fallen to the back of the cabinet under the sink. “enough”, i cried..in my head, because obviously i was going have to get a chisel to pry my mouth open.
i met my darling husband down in the kitchen and relayed my findings. his response…..”i disagree”. wait…what? you disagree? how can you disagree with my dry mouth? i mean you could, but that would be silly. i disagree with your disagreement.
i should probably have mentioned that this conversation happened before i had had coffee.
