Can I ask you a quick question?
Am I boring?
Just tell me if I am. I can take it, honestly.
Yesterday The Boyfriend said the following:
“Life with you is all early nights and (long pause) veg.”
Early nights and veg?
I’m 28. This does not sound good.
I mean it’s probably true that since our shacking up The Boyfriend’s vegetable intake has increased. We do eat a lot of broccoli.
And yes, ok, I like eight hours uninterrupted sleep. As I have a job to get up and go to, this usually involves going to bed somewhere around 11pm.
But does this make me boring? Isn’t this what everyone does?
Am I eating my five a day and getting enough sleep whilst everyone else’s week is packed full of nights on the town and riotous merriment? I went out two nights in a row last weekend, and it’s taken five days of quiet time to recover and restore my equilibrium.
Nowadays I’m more likely to be worrying about how I will dry the towels, (an ongoing saga) the cost of electricity, or when the optimum time is to exchange my tesco vouchers.
But it’s ok.
By getting enough sleep I am keeping myself well in body and mind. If you never eat any vegetables you will encourage particularly horrible cancers to take up residence in your body and you might die. I am avoiding this by eating my daily broccoli and, in turn, am prolonging The Boyfriend’s life. He should be grateful.
Anyway, the good news is we’ve found a solution to the towels.
We kiss over our new drying rack. Fade-out. End.
