Ted just got back from a business trip and hasn’t had a good night sleep for the past three days. And in as much as I want to go out with him or simply watch TV together. I just couldn’t find myself to demand time and attention. I know he’s tired and drained from all the hard work. And so I sent him home to get some much needed rest.
But an hour later, I heard my door bell rang. Guess who? Who else but Ted, in his comfy pajamas and a pillow clutched on his right arm. I said to him, “What are you doing here, dear?” He them came inside my house and said, “Can I sleep in your bedroom? Just for today at least. I couldn’t sleep at my house. And I promise I won’t snore!” I guess he wants to do a sleep over with me in the middle of an afternoon. And why not, right?
And so he spent the rest of the day catching up on his sleep, while I cleaned the house and whipped up a quick brunch for the two of us. He seems contented just snuggling in bed and occassionally calling out my name to cuddle with him. Who would have thought a six footed guy could be such a baby!
So if you asked me what I did on a Saturday afternoon, I’d answer — I cuddled with my Six Foot Teddy Bear!
