In Your Dreams


I was talking to a girlfriend in Baltimore online tonight, and she told me, "You're never going to believe the conversations that go on in this house." Here's the recap:

Mom (to Dad who is snoozing on the loveseat): George. Give me your glasses. You're going to break them.

Dad (groggily): Why? Now I can see my dreams.

Mom: Fine. I hope you have nightmares then.

Dad: I am living in a nightmare.

HUH, I'll tell my K that she should take her glasses off or take her contacts out when sleeping and she'll reply, " Why shoud I? My dreams are less fuzzy when I wear them to bed."

So, what's worse: keeping glasses on or "breathing heavily" (i.e., snoring). Hmmm, Thai?

It's like watching a tennis match.

The people at work wonder why I get so involved with this blog. Classic.

It reminds me of something Archie Bunker might say to Edith. (I'm laughing and drawing attention).

"George" Are they Greek? Sounds suspiciously similar to my parent's fights...

It's like an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond."

And tennis.

I love how brief KOB is. He cracks me up.

KOB: I hope she didn't regret telling me this, because I had it up and blogged in under five minutes after I heard it.

Thai & K: You can squabble on my blog since you are a passionate duo on your own time.

Shark: I thought it was kinda cute.

AUA: I can't shoot you, AUA. You are one of the Blogging SuperPower Triumvirate.

I-66: Actually, there are a loving couple. My friend was funny. She said, "Should I grab my cell phone camera and shoot a picture of my Dad in his Natty Bo tee shirt?" I spared the poor guy.

Drew: Lobbing one your way.

Momentary: I thought it was a funny, humorous "couples" moment. Very natural.

Wrethy: This was our mutual friend. :x Princess shoes. 'Nuff said.

Roar and Heather: Agreed.

Velvet: No. Not at all. But I do know a cute Greek boy with that name. :)


Kyle: That's nice, Kyle. You might want to share that on another blog with Keira Knightly fans.

Playful: It could be Frank and Marie, but I think it was done in a more teasing manner, without the bite.

Miss Rhinestone: I think your "ouch" must be from those sparkling panties you bought. Still snagging?

Phil: Thanks. I love those little grabbed things you hear in passing. It sure is good to have you back. Only you could go away on vacation and wind up murdering someone and resorting to cannabilism...but I digress. Welcome home.

Thank you, Kris. I wonder what these high drama meteorologists have in store for us tonight in terms of DIRE WARNINGS for the projected snow. "Dire Warnings" sounds like a Dickens' novel. Have a good weekend. :)

K (AKA grince)???? The reason my breathing is heavy is because of our female cat Olive who sleeps on my chest and YOU know it! You KNOW Cube had a picture of Olive sleeping on me and that's the proof!

At least MY dreams are on an I-Max, plasma/digital screen with senso-round sound :P
