A Mid-Week Mystery for Your Enjoyment

Imagine this: It's late. Your husband has work in the morning, so he has already gone to bed. You can't sleep however, so you stay up for another hour or so (doing important things like reading about Khloe Kardashian ((what is she thinking???)) and eating thai food). You finally decide it's time to go to bed. Turn off all of the lights. Slowly open the bedroom door and carefully slide into bed in the dark, so as not to wake your sleeping spouse. As you get more comfortable, you stretch your arm out to put it around your love. You reach. And reach. Aaaand reach. No husband. You get back out of bed and carefully check the other bedroom and the couch (because your husband LOVES TO JUMP OUT AND SCARE YOU). Not there. Where would you suppose he'd be?

A. the bathtub
B. walgreens
C. the closet (to scare you)

If you chose D, you're correct! After finding him down there (still asleep) I shimmied under the bed next to him and we had the following conversation:

Julia: Baby? What...are you doing?

Sloan: (incoherent mumbling)

Julia: Sloan!! What are you doing!

Sloan: Sleeping.

Julia: Why are you down here?

Sloan: I like it.

Julia: Do you want to come and sleep on top of the bed?

Sloan: No. I like it.

Julia: This is really weird. Do you know that?

Sloan: I like it.

Julia: But, you...well. What? Okay, love you, night.

No, I still don't get it. He did crawl up later in the night, with his comforter and pillows in tow. That's a good thing, no?


  1. hhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaha.

    i love how all your conversation start from.. "baby.." and that's how all of OUR conversation start too.

  2. Oh dear. Looks like Sloan has some weird sleeping gene, too. Your poor kids....

  3. Sorry - I thought it was only Vance who did that, but it looks like it may be a family thing - or just a brothers thing. The rest of us are completely normal.

  4. This is just like Sean when he falls asleep in Julie's bed. I usually give him about 20 mins and then wake him up and it doesn't matter if it's 10:00pm or 2:00 am, he always jumps and says " What? She just fell asleep"

  5. Maybe he fell asleep under there in search of a new hiding place from which to scare you. And you just took too long going to bed...
