last night, my guy came to see me. he's back from texas and i missed him so! he has a rather hardy constitution and can be around my contagious conditions and not be affected much. i'd love him for that reason alone, if i didn't already love him for scads of other reasons.
but last night, i think i tested his love for me. or at least his tolerance for me at that given moment. he was all nestled in bed, sound asleep. and i was nestled in bed, hacking and coughing. the dogs were outside barking and my guy was getting rather testy in his sleep. i went to the bathroom to do the worst of my own barking, but i think the small space served as an echo chamber and magnified the sound that much more.
my guy rolled over and muttered a few obscenities that could have been due to many things, but i'm thinking that the simultaneous barking the dogs and i were engaged in was greatly contributing to my guy's aggravated state. poor guy.
