No – I don’t mean that kind of ‘Pillow Talk’. Well, sort of I do. Pillow talk in this house means the VERY random conversations Andrew & I have right before we fall asleep. If most people could be a fly on the wall I’m sure they’d be very amused, we usually are. Where am I going with this? The other night was a classic ‘pillow talk’ night.
A little background, our first mattress was a queen-sized, but very old bed from when I first graduated from school, (aka cheap). It didn’t take long before 2 people on the bed started to make it sag in the middle. Every night getting in to bed I would say to Andrew – “Hey, you’re in the middle of ‘da bed”. And he he was. He would try to roll to the outside, but inevitably we would both end up sliding to the middle of our sloped bed. It became a running joke.
Fast forward to our new house…and our nice new mattress. While we no longer sliiiide down to the middle, Andrew still likes to tease me by climbing in first & taking up the middle of ‘da bed. Resulting in me needing to claim my half. The other night I was all comfy in bed – when Andrew arrived & told me ‘I’ was in the middle of the bed. No way! I was on my half. This quickly resulted in some pushing and shoving and ultmately, 2 grown married adults were counting the headboard bars to determine exactly where the ‘middle’ was! Yup, we counted. We now know exactly where the middle of our bed is – thank goodness for that! 🙂 You would think a married couple wouldn’t need to know this, all that snuggling & cuddling…but we do, if you don’t know where the middle is, how do you know when you’re there!? Of course that night both of us had to be as CLOSE to the middle as possible without going over…just to annoy eachother, but what fun would it be if you didn’t push the limit.
So, that’s just a little insight into some of the randomness that goes on in our house on a daily basis…I couldn’t make it up if I tried.
