last night, i decided to make sugar cookies. i don't know why i thought that this was a good idea. i wasn't feeling well at all, and making sugar cookies takes like 27 hours. on top of that, we actually made a real dinner. sean didn't feel that the sugar cookies were healthy enough or something but whatever...
so as i was cleaning up the mess, i said to sean , "aren't you proud of me? i have been cooking a lot lately, and cleaning up after myself."
what does he do?
gives me 2 thumbs up. then carries on watching tv. 2 thumbs up? who do you think you are? Siskel and Ebert? although i think one of those guys died. so no offense to anyone if they feel that this comment is "too soon".
i sat and thought about it. has it come down to this? me getting compliments from sean by complimenting myself and having him give me a thumbs up? i mean, i know we have been married for almost 11 months now..but aren't we still supposed to be in the honeymoon phase or something?
i brought this up to him, and he just laughed and gave me a high-five. um... k.
so then, we get into bed. we have been obsessed with HGTV lately. and by obsessed i mean that we spend our friday nights at home watching it for 6 hours straight because we are cool like that.
so we are watching house hunters and we are both in a somewhat " immature, i want to see if i can annoy you more than you can annoy me" kind of mood.
i started nudging sean in the shoulder. very softly. like every 20 seconds. then he proceeds to poke his finger on my nose. this continued on until i decided to pull out the big guns. my cold feet. i love rubbing them all over his legs and pissing him off. he squeals like a little school girl. and he decides to get back at me by fake punching my ovaries (that are in pain right now by the way, because i know you all were dying to hear that) and making a squishy sounding noise. like he felt like he was making my womanly time of the month more severe or something.
it was the funniest thing i have ever heard. i was laughing so hard that it made them hurt more. i decided i would fake punch him somewhere (in the manly areas), with the same noise. he started to laugh and said , "Don't! my ovaries hurt too!"
i was like "wait a minute sean. do we need to talk?"
he then claimed he meant kidneys and was a baby and said that they really did hurt. gave me some mumbo jumbo about his colon and i didn't want to buy it. so i decided to start making crying puppy noises. for like 20 minutes.
he then says to me,
"chloe, i think you are right. we really should get a dog. so i can put you in the cage and play with the puppy."
ummm.. thanks sean. your compliments just have this way of... i don't know.. not being a compliment? at all.
i guess that is what happens after 11 months of marriage. you move on to high-fives, thumbs-ups, and wanting to put your wife in a dog cage...
and to think i let him buy a gun. and he sleeps with it under his side of the bed....bad idea? no?
here's to the next 11 months!
p.s. sean, i love you very much, and this past year has been the best of my life. i have learned a lot, grown a lot, and love you so much! aren't you proud of me? ....
......is that one thumbs up? or two?
