Good Morning, Darling

Zen-Den needed to get up earlier than usual to go to work.  He set his alarm clock, but I didn’t hear it go off.  He heard it and went into the bathroom to shower and shave.  While he was in the shower I woke up.  I often wake up early, so it was no big deal for me to get up.  I went into the bathroom where he was now shaving.  The following conversation ensued.

Him:  Was it the noise from the light that woke you up?

Me:  No, it was the light from the water running through the faucet that did it.

Him:  Oh good.  I didn’t want to bother you.

Me:  Hmm…  *smile*

{a minute of silence}

Him:  What did you say?  How did the light from the water running through the faucet wake you up?

Me:  It woke me up because the noise from the light didn’t.  *snicker*

Him:  Oh.

{30 seconds later}

Him:  What are you talking about???

Me:  I’m talking about why I got up.

Him:  What?  Wait a minute… you knew what I meant!

Me:  Yep.  But it’s so much more fun to confuse you early in the morning.

Him:  You make no sense.

Me:  I know.  *giggle*

I do believe that it is Ms. Bean.  

Oh yes, I do.

  1. For the record, Bean always looks so happy when sleeping that I don’t want to disturb her. And, if I were the one sleeping I would want to be left to my slumber.


    1. Zazzy, if I get a sound night’s sleep then I’m aware enough to hold a goofy conversation in the morning. But not much more than that… until I’ve had my coffee.


    1. robin, this was an unusual situation. Most days we barely acknowledge each other in the morning, so I’d say “no” we aren’t usually poetic in the morning.


    1. Relyn, I know how you feel. Still, for once, I got the upper hand in a conversation with Z-D, Esq. Usually I’m the one who is confused by his wily turns of phrase.


  2. Lovely! I miss my conversations with my husband in the morning. He was self-employed so I nearly always got up way before him. (except in summer) He was a laid back guy, but NOT a morning person, whereas I am. So, lots of fun and games!


    1. Margaret, I sometimes think that it’s the ridiculous conversations in a marriage that hold the marriage together. Forget all the high minded concepts that religion and therapists toss at you. Stick with silliness if you’re in a marriage for the long haul!


    1. Jamie, I’m usually a pretty good sleeper, if I do say so myself! But I do wake up early no matter when I go to bed. So getting up that morning wasn’t as difficult for me as it was for Z-D– who was not thinking clearly.
