Live blogging from my armpit.



Kurt was lying next to me on the bed. I was busy typing super-important stuff on the laptop (What? Twitter is important. Kind of).

Kurt hadn't showered in a few days, and I wasn't letting him under the covers until he got that under control.

I sat through a few minutes of "why is your love so conditional?" and "I would love you even if you never showered!" (a safe claim on his part. I am very attached to my showers.)

In defiance, he curled up next to me, and slowly worked his way into a clingy cuddle.

Then he fell asleep.

So I turned on Pandora.

He put a pillow over his face.

...which I leaned on.

He decided suffocating wasn't as comfortable as putting his face in my armpit. You know, to block out the light.

I thought that was punishment enough.

20 minutes (and 2 facebook updates) later, he snored so loud, he startled himself awake.

Sleepily, he turned his face to the light, and gasped in pain.

"Why is it so bright out here???"

"It's darker in my armpit" I offered.

"Yeah," he muttered sleepily. "I think your armpit wins this battle."

Then he stuck his face back in. And fell asleep again.

And that's where we are right now. He is right there, snoring away in my armpit.

Maybe I should break out the cheese whiz...

I beat Matt when he sleeps. But to my defense... he snores SUPER loudly. And then he has acid reflux or something, so when he wakes up he goes to puke. It's super romantic. So between snoring and puking I get very little sleep. When I get to my breaking point I start beating the crap out of him when he sleeps. This morning he has a big bruise on his shoulder. PROBABLY because he was right up in my face with his snore and wouldn't roll. Someday he might not wake up. I can't be held accountable for my actions.

Ha! When did showers become optional? Until I started living with a guy, I had always understood them to be a mandatory part of your day. What kind of rule book did they get?

But I'm left wondering WHY he didn't shower for 3 days?!

I don't think armpit sleeping would be comfortable? I think the fact that you tolerated it is proof of your devotion.

Chantel said...

haha! I think you should test his love- don't shower and see if he'll stand by what he said :-P

Sleeping in your armpit, that's a sign of true love isn't it?
