giggle, giggle, giggle

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....


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."

*cricket, cricket*

"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."

Fast Forward 5 Days
The scene: The back row of the car on the way to Disneyland

Nathan: "Hey Lexi............pull my finger."



  1. That is so wrong.. and so funny.. but so wrong! Ahh the onset of the barking spider phase of life... come live here in boy zone.. days we get through dinner with out the mention of bodily functions.. I consider a success. :)

  2. I am laughing out loud by myself here in my kitchen. That is so funny and yes, so very wrong.

    So did Alexis pull his finger?

  3. That is the funniest thing I've heard today! I'm giggling at the reference desk while my boss is glaring! I hope my husband never does that to my 6 year old son - we would NEVER hear the end of it! Thanks for the laugh!

  4. Sounds like the perfect Dad to me. I'd keep him around.

  5. Sounds like the perfect Dad to me. I'd keep him around.
