Oh because you're so eloquent at 4 a.m.?!?

The Pretend Husband and I were woken by a phone call at 4:30 this morning from our photog friend, BAC, to announce the birth of his daughter. Yay!

Of course, it meant we were awake at 4:30 a.m. and we got a little punchy with random comments and poking each other to move off our side of the bed, etc. The last couple of nights, the PH has curled up with a sofa pillow he named "Frankie" (yeah, he's weird), so he turned his back on me and cuddled with Frankie.

FunnyGal KAT: Frankie is a boy's name.
PH: No, Frankie can be a girl's name, too. Frankie is a girl.
KAT: Well, what's her full name? (meaning, what's it short for?)
PH: Rodrigues. Frankie Rodrigues.
KAT: Is she related to A-Rod [who plays for the Yankees]? (The PH is a die-hard Red Sox fan so I knew this would get his goat)
PH: No, she's G-U-E-S. She doesn't associates with the clan who spells it G-U-E-Z.
KAT: What is wrong with you?

this is funny -- particularly because i can hear this conversation between the two of you in your voices-- i can even hear the inflection in PH's voice when he says "No, she's g-u-e-s."

last night was my second night alone while j was in wisconsin. and i hated it. but thankfully, bales did not join me on the bed upstairs and kept guard on the couch.

that sounds hilarious! but then again, he's cuddling up with a pillow-girl in your own bed? that phone call must have interrupted a really *nice* dream. LOL

sj - hope you aren't going to be home alone for too much longer! it's no fun - take it from me. I do the alone thing a couple weeks a year at least.

My Great Grandmother's name was Frankie. It was short for Frances
