Scene: Nick has fallen asleep on top of the covers in the bedroom while watching television. At 11:00 pm, Brooke attempts to gently awaken Nick from his slumber to get him under the covers. Because really, it’s quite annoying to try to get under the covers when someone else is on top of them. Am I right? Or am I right?
Brooke: “Honey, why don’t you get under the covers.”
Nick: “I don’t get under anything that’s prickly.”
Brooke: “What? What’s prickly?”
Nick: “The things on the computer screen.”
Nick: “The computer screen is prickly. I swear I’m sort of making sense. Sort of.”

We have these conversations probably once or twice a month. Sometimes I’m the half-asleep one who says hilarious things or speaks my own language. Sometimes he is. Regardless, hilarity always ensues (and there is a resulting great story to tell the culprit the following day). Methinks I’ll be making this a little series on the bliggity blog :-)
