...I am certain the murderer that has been biding his time, waiting for the perfect opportunity, is about to act out all of his worst intentions. Why then, do I keep posting Shawn's absence on FACEBOOK for all the world to see? Clearly, it is because I have no sense of self-preservation. But, I also have a home security system and a few firearms. Maybe I'm really hoping he'll make his move so I'll have an excuse. "Do you feel lucky? Well, do you, punk?"
To be honest, I know why I posted it this last time. It's because Shawn was asked to give a speech. And, my running joke for the week leading up to the trip was, "It's a speech on what it's like to be married to an awesome person." Yeah, Shawn really thought it was funny the 732nd time I said it. Therefore, I was desperate for a new audience for whom to deliver my line and it just didn't work if I didn't do it while he was off giving said speech. Don't challenge me on this - in my mind, it just didn't work.
So, there you have it. I put my family in mortal danger (in my mind at least), for good joke delivery. Yeah. That's not messed up. And, neither is this: I saved them by staying awake til an ungodly hour. Therefore, the murderer got tired and had to go home to bed because I outlasted him. Good motherhood restored. (And, once again. Say it with me this time - it's so complicated in my head.)
P.S. Lest you think I haven't learned my lesson, Shawn is NOT out of town. I am posting this on a day when the fortress is well guarded. So, back to the drawing board with you, murderer. You missed us this time!
That's Jason from Halloween.* I don't really think he's out to get me because Jamie Lee Curtis already took care of him. But, then again. I kinda do.
*Ed note: No. No, it's not. As Kelly helped school me - that's Jason from Friday the 13th. (Michael Meyers is from Halloween!) I'm not sure who killed Jason. Now I find myself just hoping he's dead! Didn't he live on for, like, twenty-seven sequels?!
