I know! It's almost Back To Yule time. Practically time for me to start warming up the ol' Fa La Las and for Ryan to start googling "Egg Nog Recipe, Lots of Alcohol".
As exciting as all of that is though, first we have more pressing holidays to discuss. Namely, Halloween. Remember when I laid out my plan to get Ryan into the spirit of things? Well today I thought I'd give you a brief update on how it's been going.
Let's jump right in then.
Sometimes Ryan rides his bike to the train. His lock is very high tech. It makes beeping noises and I think it has a small computer inside of it. Computers can be hacked though so I decided to up his safety game with a new bike lock. Because sometimes a tried and true method is the way to go.
There. That'll keep out dirty hackers.
|He didn't wear either hat. I can understand that maybe the small top hat was too formal for this particular occasion but I saw no problem with the other hat. It was even the right colors.|
One night last week, this is what he found:
Because he is still pretending that this game I am playing does not exist, he just brought my new glasses down to me. And then I had to wear them all night. And pretend like I was just wearing my regular glasses. Which was really hard because I can not see anything without my regular glasses. It took a lot of commitment. Ryan is always saying I need to be more committed (or something like that) but it turns out he's wrong. I have commitment in spades, RYAN.

Ryan gets up in the middle of the night almost every night when an alarm goes off to tell him that something or other is happening with the financial markets. He blearily heads to the bathroom to get a drink of water and wake up a little before heading to the computer. Last night I waited until he was asleep then set my trap. Sure enough at three-something AM, an alarm trumpeted and Ryan stumbled out of bed into the bathroom.
And then he was all, "Ahhh what the!? It went in my mouth a little!"
|Sleepily from the bed I mumbled, "That's what she said."|
|I put it at exactly his eye level too, so it basically just turns his face into a skeleton face.|
Oh and tonight? I've installed a clapper on his bedside light. I''ll have to tell him about it of course. "Darling I did it for your peace of mind. This way no ghouls or skeletons or other things that go bump in the night can catch you in the dark again." Then I'll wait until I see him about to clap to turn his light off.
And I'll quickly be all, "Da da da da." Before his - (*Clap Clap*)
And with the light off I'll whisper, "The Addams Family!"
P.S. Can't get enough of me? Then check out my writing elsewhere.
