Middle of the Night Shenanigans

Last night I got up in the middle of the night  and in the process of getting back in bed I did an acrobatic stunt that would rival a spot in the circus!

I am not sure what happened but as I was getting  back in bed- in the dark, I slipped and fell. Me and the lamp on the night stand crashed to the floor.  It startled Gene awake and leaning over my side of the bed he says, “What are you doing?”  I responded, “Just letting you know I am coming  back to bed!”   (I’m not sure where that clever line came from except he likes to accuse me of being noisy when I am up and roaming around!)  We burst into gales of laughter and before I could move, a  leg cramp grabbed the calf of my leg. Gene leaped out of bed and as he did, he slipped and fell. So there we are, me on the floor on my side, sitting on my bum, legs stretched straight out, trying to rub the “charlie horse” away, and Gene on his knees on the floor on his side of the bed. We laughed our fool heads off!

Of course Gene seized the moment to blame it on the sheets!  Several months ago I bought new sheets for the bed.  I always wanted satin sheets and I love them.  They are slick, smooth, cool and just plain luxurious! But they do have a downside.  Because they are so slick, it can be hard to stay in bed!  Sometimes it feels like you are just going to slide out! I told Gene they make me feel like a queen but he says it doesn’t make him feel like a king!

I have no idea what cause my acrobatic feat but it sure made us wide awake at 1:30 a.m.  And this morning…. we are still looking at each other and laughing about the ordeal! Proverbs 17:22 “A cheerful heart is good medicine…”  I guess I have a good dose of medicine for the day!

    Too funny! Have you auditioned for The Ringling Brothers yet? Glad neither of you was hurt badly, then it wouldn’t have been too funny. Date: Thu, 11 Jul 2013 13:35:54 +0000 To: dlsburk@hotmail.com
