Beauty Is In The Sleepy Eyes Of The Beholder

| Lexington, MA, USA | Dating

(I am a light sleeper, so it doesn’t take much to wake me up. My boyfriend has spent this particular night tossing and turning, which has kept me up. Needless to say, I am pretty grumpy the next morning.)

Boyfriend: “You need your happy sleep.”

Me: *amused* “My happy sleep?”

Boyfriend: “Yes. You are already beautiful, so you don’t need beauty sleep. You need happy sleep so you aren’t grumpy in the morning.”

Me: “Aw. I love you.”

Digging Himself Into A Man-hole

Being Underwater Can Cause Disney Spells

| San Antonio, TX, USA | Dating

(I’m visiting my boyfriend for his birthday, and we’re in the pool with several of his friends. I’m very tall for a girl, and he’s a bit short, so it’s virtually impossible for him to lift me normally. He discovers that in the water, he can hold me in the ‘princess carry’ without a problem. His friends spot us.)

Friend #1: “Hey guys! Look! A romantic moment.”

Friend #2: “Interrupt it!” *starts splashing us*

Friend #1: “No! We have to sing ‘Kiss the Girl!’”

(They all start trying to sing.)

Me: “None of you know the words, do you?”

Friend #3: “No. Caaaaan you feeeeeel the loooooove toniiiiight? Something, something…”

Me: “Or that one either.”
