People keep asking us - often - to update this blog. Apparently our sleeping habits are pretty popular across the interwebs. The only thing is, we're not usually funny when we go to sleep. Normally we loaf and lay in bed until we fall asleep, but I decided to dig deep and see if I could come up with anything amusing.

Tamsen tends to sleep warmer than I do, meaning she finds herself uncomfortably hot more often than I do. Our apartment is pretty warm, probably because our radiators are stuck on high or at least on and we don't know how to turn them off. (Fortunately, gas is free!) Occasionally I'll roll over to find Tamsen kicking and scootching (sp?), trying to get comfortable and cool. I'll ask what's up, and she'll reply that she's too warm. One time, I said, trying to be comforting, "Aw, I'm sorry you're so hot." And then, realizing what I said, I repeated, "I mean, sorry you're so hot," doing my best to come up with a sultry voice.

We thought it was funny, at least, but I can see how it might be off-putting to someone else. Like I said, I'm digging deep here.

it's "scutching" with an umlat.

This blog entry is story of my life. I sleep hot. My husband does not. And he's tried the sultry "sorry you're so hot" phrase more than once before.

I thought it was funny too.

(The first time.)
