NOTE: E DON'T READ THIS POST
It's really frustrating when you totally think you are in the right, and then you realise you are actually half-asleep and talking nonsense. This happens to me a lot. And I'm very self-righteous when I'm asleep.
Last night Little i had a nightmare, and after trying to console her for a while in her room E brought her into our room. I was half asleep at the time, and when E goes "I'm just bringing Little i in for a bit, okay?", I said "Okay, but just watch out for Buddy." She goes "What?"
How frustrating. Is it not obvious? Must I be woken and disturbed from my slumber to clarify something so blatant? There's a puppy lying right there between us, be careful about putting our toddler daughter on top of him. Sheesh. Can I go back to sleep now?
"Are you asleep?" She says, obviously trying to awaken the beast.
"No! Be careful. Of Buddy. He's Right There!" (Angrily sighs and rolls over in a huff).
Through the sleep seethes the wrath. You don't want to see me when I'm angry. I face E again, kindly willing to explain this ONE. LAST. TIME.
"BE. CAREFUL. OF. BUDDY."
"Buddy's out in the laundry. What are you talking about?"
And in an instant, the sleepiness vanishes, I realise I'm totally wrong, and have no leg to stand on. The bed is dogless. I roll over and go to sleep so I don't have to deal with being wrong. Maybe I can get away with that, and pretend to not remember in the morning. Yeah. Good plan.
