< Upheaval: It's your turn

It's your turn

Every once in a while, I will throw a bone to my friend Jes, who faithfully reads my blog even though, apparently, she can't find anything interesting in it to comment on. (See previous post.)


These are things that I have discovered I cannot talk to Jessica about:

1) some game called
Settlers.

2) moving to
Texas from Minnesota, because I am already here.

3) my job, because she doesn't have anything to say about that.



In a recent run of comments, I mentioned on her
site that SOMETIMES, as an ADDED BONUS, Daniel and I barter for sex. We have been married for two years. He is my soulmate. He is hilarious. We have a great time together! We are a compatible match, much like something from an E-Harmony commercial, but uncannily, we met in person. And we sometimes barter for sex.


This is not shameful! Daniel and I went through ten weeks of premarital counseling, and we would go again if it ever became neccessary.



I want Daniel to use his nice, expensive grill to cook for me. He wants to have sex. So we have worked out an even trade. We are both happy. And, this does not comprise the main part of our "relations." It is dessert.



Now, what do you think of that?

amanda, i'm sad that i couldn't think of anything interesting to say in response to your last post. when i do think of something interesting, i'll go there and post it. how's that?!? :)

amanda, you have GOT to play Settlers. It's SO fun. perhaps roger and i should come down for a weekend, and lock ourselves in your house for the whole weekend, and the only thing that you and daniel will be allowed to do is play Settlers with us for 72 hours straight.

unless, of course, we take breaks for grilled meals and dessert. ;)

roger and i barter for sex sometimes too. like, when i tell him, "roger, how about you stop playing your computer game now and i will have sex with you."

The key to a happy marriage is to barter for sex, I think. And if it isn't the key to a happy marriage, it is at least the key to getting things done around the house.

What the heck is "Settlers"? Is it a big board game with land that we stole from the Indians to claim as our own and at the role of the dice everyone scrambles to their claim?

jenn - i think you are right about Settlers. except it is the hilarious equivalent of two margaritas because these people are obsessed, like a freshman college student away from home.

jes - i am just teasing about the post. i just saw that you commented ALL DAY LONG on other posts, and i thought that i must really be lacking in interest. sex is universal, so i thought i could get a comment out of you with that. sex for comments. (note: i am bartering WITH sex, not FOR sex.)

amanda, if you were bartering FOR sex, you would have more problems than me not commenting on your post.

AND, if you were reading comments on eddie's post, why didn't you join in? i kept thinking to myself, "i know amanda reads this site. when will she stumble upon this conversation?"

SETTLERS. aahhhh, SETTLERS. it is SO like two margaritas and a freshman in college away from home. it's addictive, vindictive, and funkitive. (i made up that last word because i wanted another "tive" word.)

jenn: you are almost close! do you know what Risk is? settlers is sort of like Risk, but FUNNER.

the board game is made out of 43 hexagon tiles (well, our version has two expansion packs, so we have an extra big board. normal games have about 25 tiles), and you have all sorts of commodities that you have to garner (through a roll of the dice) in order to build stuff and win.

and i realize it sounds SO boring, but i have yet to find a person who hasn't L.O.V.E.D. THIS GAME.

really.

Quit being on the internet... you're supposed to not be having a good day today so that I'm not the only one.

This is not fun being at school with all my friends being out. All my kids can talk about is how other schools are out.

This sucks.

Michelle, I'm at work too, and my husband has the day off. However, we DID just receive an email saying we can leave at 3. :)

actually, i wasn't really thrilled with eddie's last post. i was one of the sensitive ones who was offended. of course, i didn't feel like telling him that, because i really like his site.

also, i have abundance of sensitivity these days, and i am growing at an alarming rate, so critiquing other's bodies doesn't appeal to me.
