And then I melted.

Okay, so I didn't really melt.  I do think I had a hotflash about an hour ago.  Seriously Menopause?  I'm only 42.

Ted and I were down in the lair shooting the shit, when I totally broke out in a sweat.  Down in the lair, which is about 60 degrees right now.

Ted:  Are you okay?

Me:  I think I'm having a hotflash?  I'm sweating.  Actually, I might be dying.

Ted was so worried that he immediately Googled "hotflash."

Ted:  Sudden feelings of warmth, mostly spreading over your upper body?

Me:  Yes

Ted:  Profuse sweating?

Me:  Gross. Yes

Ted:  Sudden chill as it wears off?

Me:  Not yet because it's not wearing off.  If it weren't raining, I'd go outside and lie down in the driveway.

Ted:  Go stand in the garage.

Me:  I have to go upstairs.

Don't worry, it's all over now.  I think I scared Ted, but only because he is convinced that menopause turns women into raving lunatics.  He hasn't once left the lair to come check on me.

Thanks a lot for the concern Babe.  I promise that I will try not to stab you or anything crazy for the next few years.  I definitely will not go hotflashdancing.  Not that there is anything wrong with that.


  1. LAWL OMG! Everything will be fine. I hope your ok Chell! :)

  2. So I clicked on the Hotflashdancing link... Uh... So anyways.

    So I guess that this is the beginning of our "Golden Years?" What the fuck, Man.... Oh well, At least we won't hafta worry about the stork hanging around Rosary Lane; That in itself is enough to make my day brighten up. I know a few people that are our age with infants or toddlers and all I can say is..."Good luck with THAT." Actually... Kids are a blessing but We've been blessed enough.

    I've got to figure out how to wrap gifts today. I'll make sure that I snap some pics because I'm pretty positive that it'll be the shittiest wrapping job since the invention of.... of....Fuck if I know. The shittiest wrapping job since the invention of the Earth. I'll keep you posted.

  3. Why did I have to click on that link? lmao!

    Sending 'non-hotflash' vibes your way. It's way too early for you to be going through that nonsense!

    Ted, since Christmas has passed, where are those photos of your wrapping job? I'd still love to see it! ;)

  4. Crap. We totally forgot to take pics. Lets just say, when tape was needed it came in 6 inch strips. It was kind of like a creature without opposable thumbs did the wrapping.
