A Misunderstanding.

Tomorrow, not today, but tomorrow is my six week check up since having birthed my son.  Unfortunately for my husband, he thought that it was today.  Fortunately for you, it made for a wonderful conversation this evening.

(*Posting with Brian’s permission:*)

Brian: “You know, when you called me today and you said that you had “the best” news, I thought you had been to your doctor’s appointment and that they said you can have sex again.  And I thought, “Awesome.”  But then it was something… I don’t even remember what you said…”

Me: *slapping my leg in laughter and trying not to choke on my salad*

Brian: “What was it that you said?”

Me: “I said I got toilet paper.”

The End.


  1. That literally made me laugh out loud 🙂 at my 6-week appt I got cleared to go in the next day to have my gallbladder out 🙁 Our poor men 🙂

    I’m not sure about others, but my doctor giving me permission did NOT mean I was ready.

    Toilet paper is important.

  4. LOL! Hey, you can’t underestimate the importance of toilet paper! So funny! And way to go, Brian, on actually following the 6 week rule! I remember after my first, thinking I would NEVER be ready again–and yet, here we are with #9, so clearly I got over that hurdle, LOL.

    I hope you are good to go! And in my opinion, its not TMI. But you know me. So cute. I really have sympathy for the men. And for the women who don’t have loving, and patient men.
