We sit together at a romantic dinner for two. It is our anniversary-11 years of wedded bliss. Well, we have been wedded at least, it isn't all bliss. He looks up from his delicious plate of food and it begins....
"I have something to tell you about. Something you aren't going to like."
"Well, this morning, Nate and I were hanging out before you girls were awake. We were sitting at the table and I had to toot so....
...I HAD HIM PULL MY FINGER."
The record scratch silence was heard from Little Italy all the way to Poway.
"I'm sorry, you did what?"
"I had him pull my finger and then I tooted. He thought it was the funniest thing he had ever heard and laughed for a full minute. Then he tried pulling it again but it didn't work that time. But he was still laughing."
"Sweetie? Say something."
"I will be giving all of Nathan's school friend's mothers YOUR PERSONAL CELL PHONE when those boys come home asking to pull their dad's fingers."
