Bathroom Humor

Ahh...a little bit of relief. *yawn* No more late baseball nights!

Hubby and I were in bed, asleep, before 10pm last night. However, as fate 3 little boyz would have it, last night was a wakeful one here in the Trenches.

Middle was a bit restless, as usual. (He's our resident nighttime crier and light sleeper.) Eldest had a stuffy nose, so was intermittently sniffling and coughing. And then Baby woke up, calling for me. However, as I had already been up tending to both Middle and Eldest, when I heard Baby's pleas at 3am, I nudged elbowed Hubby and whispered hissed, "Your turn!"

So when Hubby stumbled off to Baby's room, I rolled out of bed to go to the bathroom. Without turning on any lights.

I didn't realize Hubby had returned to the bedroom until I heard his footsteps trudging down the bedroom hallway towards me. In the bathroom. In the dark. On the toilet. Peeing.

Although I was groggy, my mind began racing. If I didn't say something quickly, Hubby would most likely enter the bathroom, whip it out, and pee on me!

So the first thing that popped into my head came out of my mouth: a throaty "RAH!"


Hubby just about had a heart attack. He leapt backwards, yelled in gibberish at me, and stomped off to the other bathroom.


Could NOT stop giggling. The image of his underwear-clad body blocking the door frame, then jumping back in such fright (both of his feet easily left the ground) was totally comedic.

When he re-entered the bedroom, still grumbling, I had to turn my head and bury it in the pillow so as to muffle my guffaws.

This morning passed by in the usual flurry of activity, so last night's scare-fest wasn't mentioned. Besides, it was one of those weird 3am occurrences where you think about it in the morning and wonder, "Did that really happen or did I dream it?"

So tonight after dinner, as the boyz were racing around and Hubby and I were cleaning up, he said to me in passing, "You know, you're lucky I didn't attack you last night."

And then I remembered.

And then I collapsed in a heap of laughter on the kitchen floor while Hubby sputtered:

"What the heck were you thinking?!"
"Why didn't you turn on the bathroom light?"
"Why didn't you just say to me, 'Hey, I'm in here.'?

As I re-enacted his reaction for him, I think he may have chuckled. A little. But he was (and is) still pissed that I scared him like that.

And I did (and still do) think it was frigging hilarious.

Ha. That is so something I would do in the middle of the night "RAH!"

That's hilarious!

I too have been known to pee in the dark in the middle of the night. It's a wonder I've never been almost-peed-on.

RAH! That is priceless, I'm still over here giggling. I have been nearly peed on as well, and also the near pee-er...I will have to remember. RAH!

Sarah said...

That is PERFECT.

Annie said...

I think it's frigging hilarious too! Almost spat my coffee out on my computer screen.

Thanks for the giggle, and apologies to your hubs that it was at his expense (bwaaahhhhaahahhhahaha)

Deb said...

I am giggling uncontrollably. That's something I would definitely do!

Amy said...

OMG I laughed til I had tears! And I really needed a laugh; a genuine, all-out, my side hurts laugh. Thank you!

Sarah said...

I keep giggling at the thought of it..."RAH!" Sounds like a Seinfeld episode.

Janet said...

That's funny! Something similar happened to us summer when my hubby and the kids were sleeping in the camper one night. I won't go into why I went out there to check on them in the middle of the night, suffice to say that he heard me coming, assumed a stranger was trying to get into the camper, and burst out the door ready to defend our babies to the death.

He almost drop kicked me the in the head.

I laughed out loud on this one! Love the story!!! Too funny!

Jennifer said...

Ha! That's funny, Sarah! Sounds like something that would happen here.

Congrats on the World Series win, by the way!

Lori said...

OMG! THAT is funny.

MadMad said...

Oh my God, I laughed out loud when I got to the RAH! That is so something I would have done! Poor guy - too funny!

Oh my gosh I am laughing so hard that I am sitting here with tears rolling down my face. My husband is asking me why I am laughing at the computer. I could barely read the story to him because I was laughing so hard.

I totally would have done the same thing. I have a comparable bathroom post brewing, actually, but am going to save it for a few days... I created a bit of a brouhaha today and am waiting for it to fade. [insert eyeroll here]

I never turn the light on in the middle of the night. Men just don't get that we don't have to aim. *sigh*
