This evening, K stayed home with our sleeping boys, and [livejournal.com profile] niallm and I went out.

Like, together.

As in, we actually had a conversation.

With each other.

And it ranged over multiple topics.

And other than waitresses bringing our drinks and so on, nobody interrupted us.

It was Ay. May. Zing.

And because I love you all so much, I'll share two little thoughts that occurred to us. They made us larf and larf.

1. Marxist workplace poster: "You don't have to be alienated from the means of production to work here - but it helps!"

2. When you give your toddler over-the-counter antihistamine to help him sleep, and it doesn't work? Phenergans Wake.


As you were.

2. made me laugh a lot. My parents resorted to phenergan so often when I was small (and hyperactive at night) that I can still summon up the taste. I really liked it and viewed it as rather a treat - (I'm guessing it is mildly habit-forming!)

I've heard people say the same about Calpol, which isn't habit-forming - perhaps calmer, kinder parents are habit-forming?

Mind you, I think Calpol is disgusting, especially the sugar-free version. The kids like it so much we've had to lock it up though.

You honestly don't know how disgusting Calpol is until you've necked half a bottle because you have a migraine and there are no other painkillers in the house.

YAY going out! I'm certainly due for one of them too. Isn't it brilliant to remember that you're a human being?!

Gosh. Wow.

I am especially impressed with the "conversation" part, not just staring at each other with exhaustion-deadened eyes across the table.

Plan to do it again!
