Never Take Your Girl-Couch Time For Granted
I remember the days when Cindy and I were first dating: After a long day of school and work, we’d cuddle up on the couch and watch TV. What’s the big deal about that, you ask?
Thanks to two couch and wife-hogging dogs, I’m still clinging to those cuddle date-days of the past. These days, whenever Cindy’s on the couch, Casper and Pom fully sprawl out on the couch, sucking up every inch of free space. Our couch is a decent size, so the fact that two mini-pooches can team up to snub me is all the more impressive.
Saturday night was a rare treat: I was able to sit next to Cindy on the couch for two whole hours while we watched a movie! Whether a random act of kindness or out of sheer pity, Pom and Casper crashed on the floor and actually stayed there from movie start to movie end. Good times, man.
I know what you’re thinking: “Dustin, I’m sure you have some sort of college degree, so you can’t be a COMPLETE idiot–why don’t you just pick the dogs up and move them off the couch when you want to sit next to your amazingly hot wife?”
Believe me, John Q. Questionasker, I’ve tried that. I’ll pick Casper and Pom up, put them on the floor and will sit on the couch. Yet, somehow, I always end up on the chair NEXT to the couch without even realizing it.
I took a quick picture of the dogs hogging the couch–Pom Pom’s laughing at me…
