Mothering my Husband?

Around quarter past five last night my more-scholarly-half called to check in…

“Hey Sarah, how was your day?”

Hi Andrew! Not over yet – I’m at work, and I still don’t feel well. Are you on your way to class?”

“Yup! Sorry you haven’t kicked the flu yet.”

“Thanks!” Pause. “Ummm…” Pause. “Everything okay, Andrew?”

“Yeah, everything is fine. But… I need a favor.”

“What kind of favor?”

“I left my homework at home today and I really need it for class tonight – it’s two week’s worth of work and I have to turn it in, so…” Pause. Long, awkward, ‘pregnant pause’ (if you’ll pardon the expression).

“Okay, I’ll bite: what’s the favor?” (As if I didn’t know).

“Can you pick up my school bag and bring it to me?”

So I hung up the phone, raced to the subway so I could catch the commuter rail, drove home from the station, got his backpack (with said tardy homework), floored it to BU’s North Campus and dropped it off. Why? Because that’s what good wives do.

And then it occurred to me: that’s not what wives do, that’s what moms do! I think I just mothered my husband!!

But, as my dear friend and colleague, Rhymes-With-Cannon said (as she sprinted with me to the subway), Valentine’s Day is in less than a week, and that kid owes me! Mwahahaha!

Help! I’m Wearing Jeggings!

That’s right, it’s casual Friday and this “comfort-over-style” gal is in jeggings.  Why?  Well, I wasn’t planning on it, but sometimes we sacrifice more than we intend to for our jobs, and today was one of those days. 

Even Conan pulls off jeggings better than I do! (photo from NY Daily News)

My colleague, Rhymes-With-Cannon, found herself invited to an impromptu client meeting, but felt she was dressed less than appropriately in skinny jeans and UGGs, so she and I took a trip to the ladies room and swapped pants.  I’m sucking-in and looking silly, and she’s rockin’ my almost-mom jeans (and probably feeling silly).

Emerging from the bathroom, we were met with a round of guffaws from our colleagues at MoCo Village, a chorus of “are you two wearing each other’s clothes AGAIN?” and the knowledge that loafers and snowflake socks were never meant to be paired with these trendy bottoms. 

Happy Friday, folks!

“County Law!”

We’re taking a break from our regularly scheduled Photo Phriday because, honestly, I have no good photos to share with you this morning. However, I do have a hilarious video that comes courtesy of Rhymes-With-Cannon. If you enjoy the occasional COPS episode like yours truly, you’re going to get a kick out of this. And even if you don’t like reality crime shows, I think you’ll still get a laugh.

Thanks for the laugh, Rhymes-With-Cannon! And remember, reader(s), if you come across a photo or video you know we’d enjoy, pass it along.

Have a great weekend!
