Mrs. Nurse Boy here.
There are two things in this world I really dislike...OK, so I am simplifying my list because we all know that my list is a lot longer than this, but play along, K?
One thing I hate each and every day are mornings. I hate getting out of the comfort and warmth of my bed. It also signals when I have to get everyone up and ready to go. By myself. With three kids who aren't exactly crazy about mornings, either. Oh, and I hate it even more during the winter months when it is dark and cold and, well, DARK.
The other thing I hate is football. I have never liked football and I have NO desire to start liking it now. I don't understand the game, nor do I want to take the time to understand it. Lord, help me if one of my boys starts playing the sport. The games are long and the season seems to go on and on. Then there are Pro teams and College teams...it just NEVER ends.
The other day, my radio alarm clock goes off. (I do realize that we may be the only two people who still own an old fashioned radio alarm clock, but I have told you before that we are dinosaurs when it comes to technology.) I usually awake to music, only to rise up and hit the snooze. Several times. I have even been known to hit the snooze for an hour. Don't tell Nurse Boy. He gets kind of jealous since he has to wake up and provide for the family and all.
On this specific morning, my radio alarm clock was set on SPORTS TALK RADIO. Needless to say, this made me very grumpy as I listened to several men drone on and on about the Pro football teams, their owners, and the players. When it is 6:30 in the morning, my dislike for football becomes HATRED when I awake to some crazy over analysis.
I thought Nurse Boy was playing some mean joke on me. Turns out he didn't know how the station got changed. He wasn't so thrilled to wake up to the discussion, either. (Had it been later in the day, he may have turned it up in hopes of not missing one word that was spoken.) You see, he doesn't talk, converse, or even think too terribly hard until he has been up for a good hour. With a couple of shots of caffeine. We are a match made in heaven.
Our poor kids.
The funny thing is that neither one of us exerted enough energy to actually change the radio station. We just woke up grumpy and turned it off.
Then complained about it later.
