Comfy? Really?

Well, I'm still in trial and have NO guest blogger for today so please forgive me if I sacrifice my post for a decent night's sleep so that I don't doze off during my closing argument tomorrow . . .

BUT, even though I can't write a full blog, I want to leave you with these two things:

First - today in trial, someone said "I don't want to beat a dead horse to death." Was it professional for me to take my eyes off the judge so that I could write that down? Probably not.

Second - yesterday I had to stop by Tammy's house to pick up a document that she was printing off for me. While her husband, Brian, was upstairs getting it, I sat down with the kiddos and watched a few minutes of America's Funniest Home Videos. Ben (my five year old nephew) sat next to me and cuddled up under my right arm with his arms linked around mine and his head leaned against the top part of my arm. It was all very cuddly and I LOVED it. Until he said, "Catchy, you're comfy."

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm - not sure that's a compliment, really. I mean, a soft bed is comfy. An over-stuffed chair is comfy. But ME? Doesn't he know I'm really looking for "Man, Catchy, your arms are rock-hard! And those abs? Shaun T. would be proud!" Anything other than "comfy."

The only thing that could have made it worse would have been if he had tried to fluff my arm like a pillow . . .

Well, that's it for tonight. Hopefully, I will be back up and blogging tomorrow! For now? I'm off to lay my comfy butt down in my comfy bed.

omg, that's hilarious! I'm cracking up...I can just picture the sweet moment and then the record scratching noise in the background when he said that.
