He's not the only slow one around here...

Our nighttime routine goes (mostly) like this: 

Put the kids to bed. 

Watch a couple of  TV shows off the DVR.

Get ready for bed. 

I can be in and out of the bathroom and tucked into bed in less than ten minutes. Brian's night time ablutions take between thirty to forty-five minutes, both because it's hard for him to get around and some nights he's just more OCD than others. So usually I go first and then read in bed while I wait for him. Lately I've been nodding off over my book. The other night as he came to bed I realized that I have been reading the same book for almost a week. (And it's less than five hundred pages, let's just say that's pretty unusual for me.)

I sighed in frustration and said,"It is taking me a ridiculously long time to read this book!" 

Brian asked, "What is it?"

I replied, "It's called Split Second."

It took me a good thirty seconds to figure out why he was laughing so hard. I really have to get to bed earlier...
