Nixon's Memoirs: AM/PM

Wednesday, August 25, 2004


A very uneventful day. I still plan on hitting the den/exercise room today, honest! But the major event (or rather non-event) of the day happened this morning.

I had intended on getting up with my wife at 6am in order to spend a little time with her and watch Cold Pizza on ESPN2. Well, when her alarm went off, I still felt really tired, so I asked her to go ahead and reset it to 8am.

Our alarm clock has two settings, which is good since most of the time, she and I are on much different schedules. Well, she set MY alarm for 8. What she didn't realize was that it had been previously set for 6 pm, and so she just moved it forward two hours. I was supposed to be at a mandatory meeting at work at 9am, which is when I finally woke up. I called to tell my boss what happened, but got his machine, so I just left a groggy message stating that I had overslept because my alarm didn't go off, and hope I don't get chewed out when I go in Thursday.

I really hate that meeting anyway, it's held on my day off, at a time that throws off my sleeping pattern, and usually ends up being a group gripe session.

And now for something completely different:

Those of you with spouses, significant others, etc. When you share an item such as popcorn, cheese dip, a bowl of crackers, what have you, does your companion tend to eat off YOUR side of the container? My wife does this, and its one of those little things that just annoys me to no end. She even takes it one step further sometimes by taking long pauses with her hand in front of the container blocking access to the food item. Picture it, both sitting at the table, a bowl of chips, a bowl of dip, she reaches over on MY side, dips her chip, then LEAVES her hand there on my side of the bowl so I can't get to it. She does it at theatres too with the popcorn, she'll just dangle her hand full of popcorn on my side of the box for seconds on end. This is something I just don't understand. I dip on my side, I get my hand out quickly and politely leave the item available for others. Hmm, maybe this is why I always end up with a shirt full of salsa, but darn it, at least I was nice.

Thank you kindly to my new readers, the magic of the blog continues to astound me, and I feel blessed to be a part of it. I have yet to get one negative comment on my blog. (I'm sure that's coming) But that's why God made delete buttons, eh?

Yep, I eat out of "my" side of a container. That sort of thing irritates me, too.

I guess since she reads your blog, she'll know this annoys you now, huh? hehehehe

Oh, she already knows. I wasn't trying to imply actual ownership of the "side", just indicating that it was the side closest to me.
