The other night my husband and I got busted in our bedroom doing
the unthinkable. It was the eve of our anniversary and the kids were already tucked in. When my husband asked if I wanted to “do it” I was hesitant as that meant less sleep but I figured what the heck and agreed as it sounded like fun. We don’t do it nearly as much as we used to so I was looking forward to it.
I tried to be quiet but I have a difficult time with that and I guess my screams woke up my daughter. “Someone’s coming,” I whispered when I saw McKenzie's little flashlight beam dancing around outside of our bedroom door. I dreaded what would come next.
As she rushed in through the bedroom door she shouted, “Mom! Dad!
Is this what you guys do after we go to bed?!” She was devastated and couldn’t believe her eyes. “Lots of grownups do this honey,” was my reply.
“I knew other grownups did this but I can’t believe you are doing
“What, you think I’m an old fuddy duddy that doesn’t like to have
fun like everyone else?”
She stood there and watched for a little bit, trying to help me
with my technique before finally asking, “What do you call that thing?”
“You’ve never seen one of these before? It’s an old Sega system
and this game is called Tetris. Your father and I used to spend endless hours playing this game before we had children.”
“So that’s what you do at night!”
“Yep, that’s what we do at night.”
And that my friend’s is how we got busted. I learned something else that night too. They say you should never go to bed mad. Playing head to
head Tetris and losing nearly every match is not a good note to end the night on. I’m a sore loser.
I make a kick-ass cookie dough dip and always have issues with the dip being so thick it breaks the graham crackers you dip. Well victory for
me because I recently discovered the best graham crackers for dips. They are called Scooby-Doo graham cracker sticks. They are thick and the perfect size for dipping. There is only one problem, because they are bone shaped, people think they are dog treats. I took these and my dip to a party on Sunday and on three different occasions people asked me to eat one first to prove they
weren’t dog treats, they thought it was a trick! I have to admit it would have been better if they didn’t look like dog snacks but this can be beneficial too. The suspicious people won’t eat the dip thus leaving more for you!
Have a good day!
