Laef had one final work trip this past week. He was in Michigan with the UCLA water polo team for 5 days. I’ll just say that I am really glad this traveling shit is behind us.
The highlight of my weekend (aside from the horrendously horrible migraine I had, which led to me barfing and swearing I would never drink again only to realize, wait a minute. I didn’t even drink! Who is doing this to me and why?) was buying a queen-sized waterproof mattress pad for our bed. OK, yes, maybe I’m spending too much time reading baby books and nesting, but I do not have shit else to do except try to get everything in order. And, what if my water does break on our bed? The last thing I want to come home to after delivering a baby is a fucked up mattress.
Anyway, let’s just say that things are getting progressively sexier by the day. We are now the people with plastic on our bed. And Laef actually asked me this question (he is also reading baby books) “Do you have maxi pads? Extra absorbent ones?”
What. The. Fuck. Is. Going. On. Around. Here?
Since the team only played one game per day while in Michigan, there was a lot of down time. So they went to the movies and saw Fast Five and Bridesmaids. The second might have punched me in the gut a little as I really want to see it, and there’s probably < .09812 of a chance that I could convince Laef to see it a second time.
We were talking about it afterward and he said it was funny. I told him that No Strings Attached had just arrived via Netflix, and I asked him if he wanted me to save it for when he came home “since you looove Natalie Portman so much.”
Laef: “Wait. So, I saw a poster for another movie that is the exact same thing. Friends with benefits or something.”
Me: “Yeah, that one has Mila Kunis, so maybe you’d rather see that instead since Mila is way hotter than Natalie.”
Laef: “I know. Especially now that Natalie is all pregnant and …”
Me: “I’m sorry, could you repeat that?”
No, he didn’t mean it that way.
But I told him: “Congratulations, you’ve just made me list of things not to say to a pregnant woman. You almost made it the whole nine months!”
