Reason 556


Reason 556 that I love OMP.

The past couple of nights I have been having horrible nightmares. The other night was the absolute worse! I made OMP get up with me and walk around the house to make sure it was safe. He got up, no questions asked and made sure everything was safe and there were no monsters lurking in the shadows.

That's just half of the reason I love this man...last night, right before bed, OMP made sure I was having happy thoughts. We watched a funny movie and then started to doze into slumberland. I was just about asleep and started to have another bad dream. I put my hand on OMP and asked him to talk to me. We decided to think of happy things and the conversation went a little like this:

OMP: Think of happy thoughts, what makes you happy?
Me: Well, I want to dye Easter eggs this year.
OMP: There ya go. Pink Easter Eggs
Me: Can we put googly eyes on them?
OMP: The eggs? Only if you add angry eyebrows. By the way, why did you think crackers would stop ghosts?
 Me: What?
OMP:: In your text yesterday-you said you could stop ghosts with crackers.
 Me: I said I was going to use crackers for the meatloaf  since we didn't have bread  crumbs and my dream was about ghosts attacking me. You can't stop ghosts with crackers.
OMP:Punctuation is not your strong point is it? It's a good think you're cute.

Suddenly I burst into laughter, thinking of throwing saltines and wheat thins at ghosts to make them stop attacking  me.

Me: I love you.
OMP: I love you too, now go get the box of wheat thins from the cabinet, I'm hungry and you need your ghost fighting supplies.

This is my 556 reason to love OMP. He is one that I definitely would not kick out of bed for eating crackers.


PS-My dreams last night were about  mad googly eyed Easter eggs, but that's a whole other story.

Awww! He sounds fabulous! I love the idea of fighting ghosts with crackers though, maybe it's the carbs?
