After Hours Mother's Day Humor

We were playing Settlers with some friends very early in the morning on Mother's Day (ah, the joys of staying up irresponsibly late, tempered only by the punishment of an adorable little alarm clock that is cribbed in another room and is not equipped with a snooze feature). As the second bottle of wine slowly disappeared, Paul made an inappropriate comment about an available arboreal resource. One of our friends laughed, "I think the Wooster-Dukes* are going to be having some sex tonight!"

Paul, ever at his funniest upon the rare occasions when he's drinking or at church, rejoined with hearty laughter, "No way! It's Mother's Day, not Father's Day!"

So I quipped back, "Christmas, his birthday, Father's Day, what more could man want?"

Hmm. Maybe it was much more hilarious if you were there. And drinking the wine.


*In this case, names changed to protect the guilty.

My husband isn't even that lucky. If only he'd clean the bathroom more.

It is SO NOT FAIR that you & Jessica get to hang out together. I am pouting.

St. Louis is only about 4 or 5 hours drive from the Ohio border. I'm just sayin'.

Catan is a great game!
You are such a dork, though, for playing it.
