Politics In The Bedroom

(Discussing Republican convention with husband as we get ready for bed.)

Me: I get kind of suspect that Russia is really a threat. We were shaking in our boots for years with the Reagan administration's cold war. And it ended up being for nothing.

Husband: Yes, but have you heard about Georgia?

Me: Yeah! I heard something about that. Russia has arms pointed towards Georgia or something?

Husband: It's pretty serious.

Me: It's crazy! Why pick on Georgia?

Husband: America is going to be getting involved...

Me: (Interrupting) You know what surprised me about that whole thing? Why there aren't more pissed off Southerners. You know, I expected to see Bubba on the porch with a rifle telling the Russians he was going to whoop their asses. Overall, the US seems a little too calm about this.

Husband: (Pause) You think the Russians are getting ready to attack the state of Georgia don't you.

Me: (Stare)

Husband: (Stare)

Me: Sara Palin had too much lipstick on.

Husband: Goodnight.

Please, please tell me you were joking. That is what I am going to believe.

Somo - I'm kind of like the nutty professor. One minute you will be impressed with my intelligent contribution. The next you will be stunned at my blonde-ness.

I would like to blame it on the meds but I've always been this way.

I love it! You're so awesome Lotta, and to save myself from commenting in another area, I'm going to add that those children are simply gorgeous! Love the pics.

Sarah Palin is just the one to deal with this. Alaska is right up there next to Russia, you know.

Angel said...

Ha-haha... I almost fell out of the computer chair laughing. Laughing with you of course, not at you.
