The Man and all his Glory

I knew I was in for a long night when my husband started referring to Kevin Youkillis of the Boston Red Sox as Leonidas. You know Leonidas from the movie 300. Then he started saying everything in song to the epic battle music, O, Fortuna. He was officially hyper. I don't know if he drank a gallon of coffee at 10p.m. or what but he was off his rocker hyper.

We got in bed and the epic battle conversation from his end continued. I was finally getting sick of it and well actually it was kind of funny but the joke was starting to wear off. So we were laying there and he kept it up. I was telling him to quit, he would mock me in song. So I would start pinching him, he would deflect the onslaught of pinches and mock me in song again. I would retaliate with pinches, he would mock me in song, and we would fall into a fit of giggles. This went on for a good 15 min. At this point, he couldn't stop. Everything he said was in that song. Finally he got up and went to get his iPod, cause he needed some soothing metal music to put him to sleep. Thank goodness cause I was about to smother him with my pillow and make it look like an accident.

That made me laugh out loud! I mean, if someone's going to mock me, I'd much rather it be with a song.

That is a great song to make a musical conversation out of.

Now I have to see that movie. Or I shouldn't because John would probably do the same thing. And I would have to smother him. So, not seeing 300 would actually save John's life. Hm, that means he owes me a footrub. (I love how I conclude things..)

I think you were remarkably restrained with that pillow!!
Good luck with your move. Keeping the kids amused is always a challenge. Ours had little roll-along carry on bags that they had workbooks and toys in. They loved rolling their bags behind them through the airport just like mum and dad!

Bawahaha! You guys used music as a weapon! Awesome. I haven't seen 300 yet either. I'm waiting for the sequel, 301.

Lol. I'll have to try the whole mocking in song bit. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm sure my wife will thank you too ;)

Singing totally warrants a pinch-attack!

Then again, he plays guitar in bed....badly.

So glad to hear I wasn't the only hyper monkey who couldn't sleep after the Red Sox game. I was out of my mind and up until 1:30.

When I am like that and I try to sleep, I'm just like your husband. I drive my husband crazy singing and pinching him while he's trying to sleep. So sorry for you, but I know where he's coming from!

I think our husband's are cosmic twins or something. Mine mocks me in song all the freakin time. What's so irritating about it is that he's SO good at it, and I can't do it. Dang men.
