staycation {part.8}

{Me + Aix sitting in a tree}
When we weren't touring the South of France in a minivan, this stuff happened:

++ Fifty got himself stuck out on out on the ledge. I came home from the market, and was surprised that Fifty wasn't at the door waiting for me as he usually is. I peaked under the stairs and he wasn't there either. Panic ripped through me as I ran up the stairs calling for him with Miss Vicki and JoDelle right behind me. The bedroom windows were opened and I prayed that when I looked out of them, I wouldn't see a crippled Fifty, crumbled in a heap on the ancient stones below. I didn't, but what I did see when I looked over to my right was Fifty, hanging out the bathroom window. I ran into the bathroom, and there he was, stuck. Half his body was on the outside of the small window ledge, and the other half on the inside. He was stuck. I grabbed him from the ledge and gave him cuddles, and then a spanking for scaring Mommy.

++ I'm not sure whose idea it was, (Miss Vicki, I might be looking at you) but somehow we convinced The Husband to read parts of Fifty Shades of Grey to us, out loud. Now I'm sure you're thinking, "ooh, Christian Grey being read in a French accent, oh la la." But I can assure you, it was far more funny than sexy (far, far more; like snort your Montrachet up your nose, funny). And yes, we made him start on page 115. I'm thinking I should make The Husband read snippets of the naughty tome for a vlog series.

++ Now about that Montrachet I snorted up my nose... it was heaven in a bottle. If you've never had the pleasure of enjoying Montrachet, I urge you to try it as soon as possible. As Alexander Dumas said, “It should be drunk, on one’s knees with hat in hand.” Yep, that's about right.

++ And back to that vlog series... so what do you think, should we make The Husband recite Christian Grey?

  1. Ha, I'm sure the vlog would be great! I'm sure your hubby is the exception, but I don't find the French accent sexy at all. Probably from hearing it too often for it to be exotic (and sometimes it's so super strong it's funny). And then if they're actually speaking French, it's hard to get too excited if you know they're talking about grocery shopping or something.

  2. Bahahahahahaha!!! Good thinking! Why had it NOT occurred to me to make Seb read 50 Shades out loud?! So, so, SO funny!

    I'm going to test it out tonight! And for heaven's sake, please DO use it for the vlog series!! You crack me up, SL!

  3. Hmm, I think the sound of any man reading passages from an erotic novel would sound silly.
    And for your information, your dog kept popping into my head everytime she thought "Oh Fifty!!"

  4. HAHAHAH your poor husband.

    I wouldn't dare ask Jon to read it aloud because he'd get really into it and would, like, incorporate interpretive dance movements. womp.

  17. Oh my lord, please do this. I'm currently sitting on a few videos of friends doing amusing accents that I'm waiting for permission to post, but I don't think they could hold a candle to a Frenchman reading the dirrrrrrty-ness that is 50 shades.
