Last night while watching Grey's Anatomy (which was a!) I had a few (okay, four) cookies that Adele had baked for the occasion. They were these chewy, greasy chocolate chip concoctions that slid down my gullet with ease. And they were very thin, which is why I had four. Really, it was only like two. Stop judging.
When I came home I was talking to Steve in his office and I began to feel some ominous tremors in my guts. "I don't feel so well," I stuttered, then ran to the bathroom to have a sudden and severe case of the diarrhea. Steve came in to check on me and see if I was OK.
What a sweetie.
I kindly asked for some privacy and spent the next 10 minutes moaning in agony while my body expelled the culprits.
Gross, I know.
When I was emptied, I stumbled to our bedroom and crawled under the covers. Steve marched in a few seconds later, with a mighty smirk on his face.
He was holding his little digital recorder in his hand.
Turns out that when he came in to see how I was feeling as I was writhing on the can, he planted the recorder on the counter next to the toilet (I hadn't noticed at the time). The stupid little machine captured the sound of my every groan.
Steve thought this was hilarious, of course.
I am so loved.

I knew my cooking was bad but I had no idea I was going to poison you. I'm so sorry Amanda I promise I will bake no more cookies and from now on we'll stick to fruit on SUnday nights

Ohmigosh. I'm glad my husband isn't that quick on the uptake! Yikes.

Hahahaha!!! I can't believe he did that! Ok, so I don't know Steve so well.

What a perfect match -- you blogging away about explosive diarrhea and him capturing it all for posterity. Kinda makes me wonder what kind of sense of humour mini-Brown will have:)
