In honor of my husbands upcoming birthday, I felt the urge to write a funny story about something that happened several months ago that involved my lovely husband of 27 years..
You know how daddy's are with their little girls..when one of them is out late at night, you sleep with one ear open and one eye awake waiting for their return home. My husband is no different. If the phone rings in the middle of the night you jump up expecting the worst and hoping for the best.
Let me set the scene..
It's no secret that my husband is a snorer. We've tried everything from sleeping on his back, side and stomach, on a wedge, without a wedge, a firm pillow, a soft pillow and even some type of magic pillow which hasn't done its trick. I finally decided to buy him a box of "Breathe Right Strips". Supposedly they are to help cure the snorer of his or her snoring. They open the air passages and have helped many.
I couldn't wait to see the results of my purchase as I was set on a good nights sleep.
Dear daughter was out for the evening and then the phone began to ring, I opened my eye to see the time. OH! 1:00am and dear daughter is stuck with her car. Who do you call? Breathe Right Daddy!
I heard my husband get dressed, grab his keys and off he went to save the day. Tossing and turning, I rolled around wondering what was going on, drifted in and out of light sleep until they both came back in the house. With a small night light on, I turned to husband and asked him what happened. I squinted my eye and said, "OH MY!" I turned the night light one notch more to see that my husband and left with his Breathe Right Strip still intact on his nose! I asked my husband, "Did anyone see you helping Amanda?" He replied, "Yes the cop that was with her and I also talked to a dispatcher" Why? I said, "well, because you had your Breathe Right Strip on silly!"
In my husbands usual demeanor, he just laid back down and said, "Oh well".. I tucked myself in and rolled to the side, then said, "good night Breathe Right Daddy" and went to sleep with a smile on my face..
Morale of the story... There are somethings you should not leave your house without, but Breathe Right Strips are not one of them!
