TAG and a Long week

So I am writing something for the first time in a long time… Ryan has been pretty good about updating and he writes much funnier things than me so I think it is better that he does anyway. I just want to tell you that this has been one of the longest weeks EVER!! Ryan, Eric, and Paul left last Sunday to Arizona for some auctions and don’t come back until tomorrow! K that is a full 8 days… ha ha I know I am a baby, but I really really hate being here all alone! I have tried to keep busy, but it just feels like an eternity when I get home and am here by myself. Luckily Sue called me to go down to Vegas with her on Thursday so that was something fun to get me out of here. The weather was amazing and I wish we could have stayed longer! We went to Uncle Eric’s birthday party which was so fun , did a little shopping, and ate lots!! But here I am back alone again (in Utah!) on Sunday… lame. Plus I look outside and SNOW is covering everything again!! Ahh. I am the worst driver in snow!! I cannot wait until tomorrow when Ryan gets back!!

The Theater of Life: Act I, Scene I

(Lauren and Ryan lying in bed trying to fall asleep. Ryan keeps turning to and fro unable to sleep.)

Ryan: I can't flippin sleep.

Lauren: I know. I can tell.

Ryan: My stomach hurts like none other.

Lauren: Me too. Mine's been hurting all night.

Ryan: Ah man. I hope its just gas.

Lauren: It better not be.

Ryan: I hope it is.

Lauren: Then you better as heck turn your body away from me! And, you better stick your bum out of the covers so your nasty toot isn't trapped under the blanket! I'm serious.

(Laughter ensues. Ryan continues to laugh as Lauren reaffirms that she is not joking. Ryan tries to push one out just cause it'd be exceedingly funny at that moment. But, there is nothing to push out and he doesn't want to push to hard because he learned a long time ago that that is not a good idea.)

Lauren: Wait, did you really just turn away from me and stick your bum out of the covers?!

Ryan: Yes.

(Lauren now laughes uncontrollably. Ryan's stomach still hurts. Laughter dies down and a minute of silence prevails.)

Ryan: I guess I don't need to toot after all.

(Lauren begins laughing again and Ryan covers his body with the blankets and slides back next to Lauren.)

Ryan: Wait, did I just say toot instead of fart?

Lauren: Yes you did.

Ryan: I can't believe I'm saying words like that now. Its rediculous. Toot? Its a fart.

Lauren: No, its a toot.

(Minutes pass. Lauren drifts off to sleep. Ryan slowly gets comfortable, too comfortable, and not wanting to wake up his cute sleeping wife, gently and quietly rips one, next to Lauren, under the covers.)
