    I think the key is either drugging Mike or (gently) smothering his head with a pillow to ensure a deep and “restful” sleep. If he doesn’t wake up in time for breakfast, his loss. More for you, Wife of the Year!

    Lol “hairless cat trying to hump a balloon.” I have never seen that movie. Is it worth a looksie? The clip was hilarious.

      I haven’t actually seen it in a long time. I think it was mostly stupid, but I did love this sneaky bit…

        Yeah, I figured as with most Adam Sandler movies, whatever clip gets posted is usually the best part of the movie.

    You got up when you could still see the moon? OMG you get a gold for Wife of the Year (as soon as the burns from the biscuit pan heal)!
    Loved this….

      I always get up around 5ish, so I can’t really take credit for that being particularly nice. And Thanks!

    You definitely win for the attempt. And it’s just cheating if he gets up when you are OBVIOUSLY preparing a nice surprise for him.

    I think the biggest problem here is (1) you decided to get up early and (2) you didn’t just run to Hardees to get their biscuits. They’re delicious!

    You’re a better wife than I am, and have far better ninja skills too.

    You can’t surprise the Bobina. Ever.

    a) she just knows. It’s freaky.

    b) she’s a trained chef and thus anything kitchen oriented makes her super ninja like and she’ll pounce.

    c) If the kids are going to surprise her or make her breakfast or something, I just tell her before hand. Once I tried to hammer the door shut and I hit my hand and yelled the f word. They still talk about it.

    Ninja in training. Haha! I am always amazed at how insanely loud the following things are:
    1. Farting in bed with a new(ish) partner
    2. Flushing the toilet between 12 a.m.-5 a.m.
    3. Watching porn. Ever.

    It’s been a few years since I have seen you, but this post brought back many a fond memory of laughter and bookclubs. I do want to remind you biscuits and gravy do not make you the best wife in the world, sugared french fries and, your very sneaky sneaky aplomb at getting Mike to approve that lovely shade of gray in which to paint your shed! (Eke, that just sounded like a terrible and should never be mentioned book title). Perhaps you should write a blog not about trying to be nice whilst sneaky, but about the subtle sneakiness needed 24/7 when living and loving a color blind person who is constantly in fear that you are trying to pull a fast one on him. Rick is often so convinced I’m dressing him in pastel colors that he will ask total strangers what color he is wearing. No need to be quiet, just patient and loving 🙂
