There I was sound asleep in my pitch black room surrounded by three sleeping Dobermans, while I was al fresco. Suddenly three Dobermans aren't sleeping but barking in alert at my bedroom door. A voice that is not my husband's is saying "Robin, uh Robin" are you there?
I mentally remember that I put a human and dog aggressive, Gigi, in her crate last night, and realize it's my cousin. The same cousin that I told not to come into the house as I had an aggressive dog that I was training. Realizing people never listen to you, Gigi has been spending the nights in her crate just because of situations like this.
By now, I am stumbling around my pitch black and very noisy (Doberman alarm barks) room trying to find something to cover me up. Realize I don't have a bra on, so grab my robe to cover up any noticeability of that, and groggily make my way down the stairs. Everything is very fuzzy because I have no glasses on.
"Oh, were you asleep? I assumed you weren't because your lights were on." Oh, and just talked to your husband and he's in Portsmouth with his friend? (also found out later husband told my cousing that I was sleeping) Luckily or maybe not so luckily, I was too groggy to loose my temper. As he babbled on about how his plans had changed and "we just stopped over' (we?--thought he meant his new "girlfriend" but now perhaps think it was my two other cousins probably figuring I was freakin asleep) and he didn't want to leave without saying goodbye. And of course, I am just waiting twiddling my thumbs for everyone to sneak over after the monster and the donor's house party for everyone to say goodbye. That's what we do around here, we just wait for people to come over unannounced. In fact, that's what I am going to do right now, as I have been informed that my other two cousins are going to find a way to come over here today. Oh goody, I will just sit at the kitchen table now and wait for the knock, oh no that's right they don't knock they just come in, to happen.
I won't even tell you what we were doing one other time when they dropped in because they could finally break free from the other house. Nothing like a little warning. Do they think that a married couple might have some, er, private moments best left to themselves? Jesus. A little ringy dingy would be nice.
