I’m done with waiting for the sleep study.
Did you know that they’re booked up months in advance?
Yeah. It’s ridiculous. I mean, how’s a girl supposed to get her beauty sleep?
It’s okay, we’re almost there and I’ve finally convinced him to try those strips. How, you ask?
OFFSPRING: I’ve finally managed to copy Dad’s snore.
OFFSPRING: Yeah, but to do it, I have to like… close off way deep in my nose (mimics snore almost perfectly)
HIM: I don’t snore
ME: (laughing) that’s pretty impressive. (tries) I can’t do it!
HIM: I DON’T SNORE!
OFFSPRING: The thing is, it can’t be good for him to have it all collapsed like that. I mean, it’s really hard for me.
ME: Good point. Honey, maybe they’ll do that surgery where they widen the inside or whatever?
ME: You know, you could try those strips, to see if that works. They do the same thing, only from the outside.
HIM: Do they? Huh, I didn’t know that. Let’s pick some up while we’re out.
So he’s been using them for a couple of nights now, but I’m not sure he’s putting them on right. Or maybe they slip off by the end? I mean, it’s better, but…
HIM: How’d you sleep?
ME: Not good, actually.
HIM: Of snoring?
HIM: Chainsaw killer?
ME: Automatic gunfire, actually.
HIM: I don’t snore that loud.
ME: (o rly eyebrow)
HIM: Well, it’s only been two nights.
