Sleep, And A Clumsy Butt

Last night's main mission? Acquire sleep. Mission status? Accomplished...kinda.

Beth drifted off into a nice peaceful sleep...I wasn't yet tired, so I cracked open a book and read for awhile. Then I had to get out of bed. In an effort not to disturb Beth, I attemtped to get out of bed the way Houdini might have tried to get out of a straightjacket. Both cats strategically located themselves on the bed so as to further raise the level of difficulty. It won't be a surprise to anyone that, clumsy as I am, I managed to send the lamp on my side of the bed flying across the room...after I hit it with my ass.

Of course, Beth woke up. "Are you okay?" she asked groggily. "The cats okay?" she continued, sure that they had caused the ruckus (its not often, I get to use the word "ruckus"). "Yeah, they're fine," I said. "I knocked the lamp off with my ass!" I continued, as if proud. In retrospect, I should have just blamed the cats.

At least the lamp didn't break! Hope you guys are having a great weekend.

That's what I always do! Blame the cats!

You had the perfect excuse, yet you told the truth about your clumsy ass.

This is why you're my (sniff, sniff) hero. I love you, man.

LOL! That must be some ass to send the lamp flying "across" the room.

It could have been more embarassing. I can't figure out how just yet, but I'm sure it could have been.

When there's a doubt, it's always safe to blame the cats!

Hm..."you crack me up" I see a pun there. A very, very bad one.

somehow while reading this post "Baby Got Back" snuck into my brain

I usually stay up so late that I have to sneak into bed to avoid the "Why are you up so late?" conversation. I kind of hate that conversation because I never have a good excuse.

I am proud that you told the truth!
A lying cactus is a dead one.
How's your ass?
