Barney and I were laying in bed. I had my head on his chest
The noise he was making reminded me of a conversation I had online with a Dd wifey friend of ours. I raised my head,relieving him briefly of his pfthing... ( I mean honestly the way he was carrying on you'd think he had just walked through a spider web!)
Me " Oh, Oh. Oh! I forgot to tell you about a conversation I had in chat yesterday with ******* !"
He just chuckled. " Okay"
(This is an by memory account of our conversation;)
Her " Oh you'll never guess what I did on Saturday."
Me " Okay, I'll bite"
Her " I pffft ( her husband)"
Me " You WHAT????"
Her " I know"
ME " Why on earth would you do that???"
Her " I don't know!!"
Me" Well? "
Her " He said ...." Well Willie maybe able to get away with that.......for now, BUT you..."
Me " HE SAID WHAT? !!! I DON''T pffffft BARNEY!!!! Well not outside of print on the blog"
At this point in the story Barney, chuckling looks me in the eye and very seriously says, " No you don't. That would be very disrespectful." Then he chuckled again, " But you do like to on the blog"
Me to him..." Yeah,...anyway"
Him, " Yes, sorry. Continue"
Me to him " Right so I typed back in all caps: YOU TELL HIM THAT RIGHT NOW! I DON'T NEED HIM THINKING...sheesh, I mean C'MON! "
Her " I DID TELL HIM ! "
Barney began chuckling again about my silly conversation with our friend, or perhaps that it had me so worked up. I lay back down on his chest and started to settle down, recovering from my animated, mocked outrage. His hand went back to my hip.
Me, in a sleepier voice. " I mean honestly, why would she do that? Pfffting HIM of all people ? "
Barney, still clearly amused, " I'm not sure- momentary lapse of reason? "
ME, " Still, such and obvious way to get in trouble"
Barney, " Umhmm"
Me, yawning, " Everyone knows, you wait until you turn around and then silently roll your eyes so you ....
" HEY!" ~ very much awake again

*** Over the past few weeks with the posts that summed up our Summer of Suckiness, I wanted to publically thank those of you who sent me emails, not only offering me support, but for telling me that you too have been there , or are going through similar things. Those type of comments are so supportive. Maybe more than you know. It is difficult to continually type out 'downer-type' posts. I realize a great majority don't want to revisit with these type of posts. Knowing that a few of you out there ( while I'm not happy that you are going through a difficult time) have taken comfort in knowing that TTWD can be more of a struggle for some more than others finding a flow because of my posts, gives me strength to keep my fortitude in retelling all the messiness that happens here. So Thank you for reaching out and sharing you stories with me too.
