Pinch His Nose While He Sleeps…

You’re gonna need to get this in your life now.

But before that, let’s talk about how awesome I am.  For realsies, this little incident adds a new level of awesomeness to my scale.

I work from home.  (That’s not what makes me cool.)  I work from home, which means I get to complete the responsibilities for both of my jobs on my own time.  Isn’t that great?  On my own time.

My own time! 

Are you laughing as hysterically as I am? Hold on, gotta get a kleenex.

Ok, where was I…

Oh yes, I was explaining that I work from home, on my own time.

Thankfully, I do have a babysitter two days per week for the kids (Hi, Stephanie!). During that time, I hit up local coffee shops to do my business.  (Oh, come on, not that kind of business, I can never do that in public… unless I’m at a bookstore. What is it with bookstores?!)

Yesterday was no different.  Work, work, work, tappety tap tap, chat with several other patrons, wish I could have coffee on an IV drip, remember that time last week that I belted out a chorus with my headphones on, pack up, go home.

Upon entering the front door, I passed by a mirror and it was at this moment, friends, my awesomeness increased by at least 170%.

My shirt. was. inside. out.

We’re talking big ol’ seams running down my arms, a monster tag sticking straight out under my pony tail, care instructions  flapping in the breeze at my side, the whole nine yards. I thought back to that morning and mentally replayed asking Andrew if he liked my shirt, doing the 360 turn so he could get the full effect. I clearly remember him responding, “Oh yah, looks great! Is it new?”

Hmph. As payback, I’ll be pinching his nose while he’s sleeping tonight to see him wake up in a flurry of confusion.  Isn’t that the best?  Makes me laugh for 10 minutes every time.

So, as I was saying, you need this in your life. Stat.
