Does Monday Count if You didn't sleep?...

I got zero sleep last night. On account of I was up all night hacking my lungs out of my throat. I'm pretty sure not coughing and being unable to breathe was a much better feeling. At least my eyes didn't feel like they'd pop out of my skull. And my throat didn't feel like little men spent the night sanding my throat with sandpaper. And I slept. I literally saw the clock every hour. Hello Monday!

I actually had someone to take care of me too. My manfriend. I've never had that before. It's such a nice change! I think he's the sweetest thing! He still tells me I'm beautiful in the morning, even when I'm not. Tucked me in like a "me" burrito on the couch. Gave me medicine. Banged my back to break up my phlem. Made me yummy mac and cheese and delicious lemon tea with honey. Kissed me even though I'm highly contagious, and said he couldn't keep his lips off me if I paid him. (awww!)

We are both continually amazed at how unlike "everyone else" we both are. It doesn't get old either. I think once you've struck out so many times with shitty people, when you really find what you are looking for, it's like Christmas every day. (I love presents, but I love my manfriend way more!)

Another reason I happen to think he is irresistable, is the fact that I made his cat a catster page...and he didn't tell me it was stupid. There is also a cat at his house that is a stray, and injured. His back leg is hurt and he can't walk he plops over. He stayed outside with me while I petted him forever, and didn't complain, and actually had compassion for that animal. He also fed it a can of food. Shhh... Then he took pictures of him for me to post online found ads.

And, wait for it......

He actually said we should open an animal rescue. I think someone mixed all the perfect man ingredients in a big bowl, and baked me a manfriend. Now, the universe has to send me the lottery for all this to happen, but I'm confident it will.

And I love having inside jokes with someone.Like this scene from Superbad.

Did you have a happy Mother's Day? I didn't see my Mother. She can't catch what I have cus it'll be worse for her. I spent it burrito'd up on the couch with a cute boy!

Reason 234 I'm meant to be with my manfriend? His friend told him this weekend he's destined to be an old cat man. (like I'm totally gonna be an old cat lady) so we decided to be old cat people together. Eat that world!

P.S. Have you heard this remake of careless whisper by Seether? (BTW: Awesome.) But, I did learn that all this time I thought these lyrics:

'should have known better than to cheat a friend'

was

'sugar don't bite I like to cheat a friend'

Isn't love grand? It's the best feeling in the world, but at the same time, it's very scary. I'm happy that you two are still going strong. My girlfriend and I are cat lovers, too. I can't stand people who are mean to cats.

I am desperately trying to turn B into an "old cat man," but it doesn't seem to be taking yet... some boys are just Dog Guys, no matter what, methinks.

So glad you found your perfect Man Cake!

I love how gooey in love you are. It gives me, a jaded old spinster, hope that love does exist in some corner of the world. And a good manfriend SHOULD tuck you in and care for you, but going as far as to kiss you when you're contagious? Now, that is love. ;-)
Feel better, Fizz!

mike:
gotta love a man that loves cats! it takes a strong character! yes love is grand, and scarey, but the longer it goes the less scarey and more grand it is!

Lilu:
hmmm give it time. B will come around. Many cat people are converts. Once you own cats, you get to see the joy they bring. I love mancake.....Like a pancake only meaty! I'm stealing it!

merider:
i know i was so the same way before meeting manfriend, i was just opening up to the possibility of that happening for me. i wouldnt even watch love stories! Manfriends should care for you! I just had poopie sorry excuses for men my whole life.

You two are so mushily sweet. I love it!

As for your cough. My advice, which you didn't ask for, is to go to urgent care and get a cough medicine called Tussionex. It works like a switch, turning the cough OFF, but first, it loosens all your gunk so you can get it out. Its main ingredient is Vicodin, so doctors don't like to prescribe it, so you might have to cry. It's the only way I can get rid of a nasty cough, because you can't fight off a cough without a little sleep, and you can't sleep when you havea cough!
