My husband and I had gone to bed the other night around 10 pm. We were both tired because my hubby had been up sick most of the night before. B. wasn't too tired, however, to be his usual prankster self. He is always attempting to grab my pillow just before my head lies down to rest. He has done this for years, and despite the fact that I almost ALWAYS grab it before I ever turn my lamp off, and stop him from performing this dastardly deed, he still attempts it night after night after night! I guess the FEW times that he has actually succeeded is reward enough for him. It is a challenge. He must conquer! I just get so tickled at his persistence. Well, in spite of his tiredness (is that a word?), he attempted to pull my pillow out from under me after I had already laid/n? down. He managed to grab a large portion OF MY HAIR when he yanked this time. Needless to say, I was not quiet about this little happening! I yelped in pain and proceeded to slap, smack, and hit him! We got so tickled and were just innocently playing (really) when we heard a "knock, knock, knock" at the door, followed by our son saying this: "Mom and Dad, could you take the volume down a notch, PLEASE? We are trying to get some sleep around here!" Talk about your role reversal! What a funny, funny boy! We just had to say, "Yes, sir!" and "Get yourself back in bed!", close our eyes , and try to keep our giggles under the covers! We were duly chastised, but he better watch out--it will come back to haunt him!
