Napping Buddies

Does anyone remember the episode of Friends when Ross and Joey decide to be napping buddies because they sleep better when spooning on the couch? That's Noah and Helo. Anytime we have a family movie night or TV night, the two of them end up asleep on each other. Priceless.

A Good Example of How Paul Thinks

Last night, Paul told me that our vacuum wasn't working. I told him not to worry about it and that Scott would deal with it. This morning, Scott came home from work to find the vacuum, a package holding a new belt, a screwdriver, and this instructional guide laying out for him. (Notice Paul even showed Scott which direction to turn the screwdriver.)

Noah: "AVADA KADAVRA!!!" (with a tinker toy pointed at Paul)

Paul: "THAT'S THE UNFORGIVABLE CURSE! You are SO going to Azkaban!!!"

Me: "Noah, no death curses allowed."

Noah: "But it's Harry Potter!"

Me: "I don't care. You don't curse your brother with death. End of discussion."

Detective Work

I got into the shower at 5:40am. First thing I noticed: the shower head setting was strong enough to propel the Titanic. I thought the jet power was going to peel the skin off of my back. Second thing I noticed: my shampoo did not smell like whispering acai berry. It smelled like Old Spice. Third: there was a P carved into my bar of soap. Four: there were Harry Potter spells written in the steam on the shower door. Five: there was a pair of dirty tighty whities on my bath rug. Thankfully I am a very skilled detective, although I'm fairly certain a chihuahua could have figured this out. Paul used my shower last night. For the last time.
