Time for a Nooner!


I'm going to get right to the point here; I slept with my husband in the middle of the afternoon yesterday! It's shameful behavior for a 65-year-old woman and a 69-year-old man, I know, but we just couldn't help ourselves. Maybe I need to explain, so you won't be so shocked and appalled.

It started out just like any other Thursday. We woke up, showered, and ate breakfast. Are you following me, here? Okay, I went to my office and spent some time on my laptop, and hubby watched a little television, and then the trouble began: We went back to the Chamber of Horrors. (If you aren't familiar with the Chamber and the goddess of torture and her pain paraphernalia, you may want to go back and read : http://wrestlingretirement.blogspot.com/2009/08/welcome-to-torture-chamber.html before continuing. It's okay, I'll wait for you.

Are you back now? Good. Well we did our tour in the Chamber, and it was pretty much as I described in that earlier post, except the goddess was just back from a week of vacation, so she was even more perky and chipper than usual. (translate: she had new and more nefarious contortions and movements to put us through!) Even more of the "Step 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1" than before with an added twist of having us perform opposite arm and leg movements, until our eyes were crossed from the sheer effort of trying to remember to raise the right arm while kicking out with the left foot--well, you get the idea!

When the maniacal maneuvers mercifully came to an end, we dragged our panting, perspiring , pitiful piles of pain once known as our bodies home. We read the mail; I made us sandwiches for lunch, which we devoured ravenously.
Having finished lunch we moved into the living room, each settled into our individual recliners in front of the television, and immediately fell into a deep snooze. And that, my fellow bloggers, is how I happened to sleep with my husband in the middle of the afternoon!

WHAAAT?
You were expecting porn? At our age, nooner takes on a whole new meaning!

It's good though that you were active first! My dad used to fall asleep in the chair while reading the morning paper before he even did anything else!

Mesina said...

HAHA!!! Ahh what a great post! Well thankfully you earned that nap first and once I realised you were talking a fitness regime first, my hope of porn started to deteriorate. Its ok, I'll survive!! xx

The Vegetable Assassin said...

You're a terrible tease woman!

I'm in my damn 30s and I'll happily nap anytime.

Or do other stuff. Depends on energy really.

Husby and I have slept together in the afternoon too. It looks like we're doomed for a lifetime of similar nooners :) Very funny post.

McVal said...

S.E. Sward said...

Oh. Em. Gee. And I was so hoping to get some insight into how retired folks get it on! I am in deep doo-doo since Darling Husband and I already have your kind of nooner and we're just 40!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Hope you'll come back and check out some of my funnier, lighter stuff under 'The Good, the Bad and the Unrepentant' ...

I plan to come back - often!

cat said...

Oh gosh, I'd love a snooze like that! Thanks for stopping by from SITS. I see you like reading - have a look at my book review blog - it is still new, but will grow.

Mox said...

Hi! Just dropping a return visit from my blog, Musings of a Moxie Mama. I'm so sorry, but I couldn't even finish reading your post because you and your husband are the same ages as my Grandparents and I didn't want my mind to go there! I love the picture though! Funny.

Betty Mann said...

Love,love,love your blog. So sweet!!
Thank you for your lovely post. I'D GO FOR A NOONER like that anyday!!

Jo said...

To answer your question--yes, as a matter of fact, I WAS expecting porn. Oddly enough, however, I am not feeling let down in the least.

You are just THAT good. ;)

Peace, love and happiness,

By the way--I think those people in the picture really need to simmer down and learn when enough is enough and to call it a day.

I mean, seriously folks--remove the lamp shades from your heads, go home and sleep off the hair of the dog that obviously bit you.

Man, I wouldn't want to be THEM in the morning.

Eva Gallant said...

Jo, you totally cracked me up with that comment!! lol

One Sassy Girl said...

Oh Eva, if only you hadn't mentioned that older post I'd have got a bit turned on. The numbers remind me of that Friends episode where Monica maps out the female anatomy for Chandler with numbers and then works her way to the big O with a countdown.

Miss Peregrin said...

Hahaha, my partner and I did this the other day, and we're only in our twenties!

The Good Cook said...

Oh, you sooo had me... good one.

that one girl said...

Eva....girrrrrrlllll...there are no words.....NO words to describe the look on my face....LMAO!!!

by the way - i splashed you back and gave you props in my acceptance speech...u must check it out!

Entrepreneur Chick said...

I enjoy your pictures as much as the post. Too cute.

Honeysmoke said...

Martha said...

Great post, thanks for the funny, also your visit to my blog.

Kimmy said...

LOL!! I was actually thinking...well, I think you know :o) I did however, make my husband promise me that our "nooners" are just that....getting jiggy at noon when we get to be in or 60's and so on... LOL! Too funny!

Thanks for stopping by my blog :O)

This is totally hilarious -you go girl!

Canadian Blend said...

I like to tell the story of how my first wife called me another man's name (the boy friend before me) when we were in bed.

We were sitting on the end of it and putting our shoes on. I said something that irritated here and she said, "Bob! ... oops ... sorry," as Bob was not my name. She asked if I was upset -- I told her I wasn't but that I was going to tell everybody her calling me another guy's name in bed. (So here it is.)

Eddie Bluelights said...

Great Eva!
Let you into a little secret! I've slept with all the girls in the Ambulance Station I used to work in. We just fell asleep waiting for control to give us the next job. LOL
No such luck regarding the other.
Great story Eva

gaelikaa said...

You lead us on nicely Eva! You clever lady!

Happy SITS day.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Once my son is down for a nap, we sleep too.

Judy said...

My doctor says there's Medicaid sex now. You get a little bit, but not enough to last you the whole month.

Katherine said...

Ahahah I was already laughing just seeing the picture you chose to go along with the title!! I hope that your nooner was satisfying and rejuvenating!

Bucksome Boomer said...

Hi, found you through being the featured blog today.

I'm too young (or don't have enough money) to retire yet) but on the weekend we enjoy the same type of nooners. I'm looking forward to retirement when we can do it every day!

Great stuff and I'm glad to have found your blog.

Kim said...

I love your opening photo. That nooner sounds enticing.

Mommie Daze (Colleen) said...

Oh, that's best kind of nooner. I like to have them when my kid are napping.

Life with Kaishon said...

: ) You are my favorite funny girl!

cindy said...

LOL,,,,Im 38 yrs old and I think I need a "nooner"

Happy SITS day ;)

Laurie said...

Great pic. By the way, my grandfather's nickname was noon, b/c he slept everyday at noon. But he had 8 chldren... so maybe he wasn't just sleeping next to Grandma. Not sure about Grandpa Noon.....

Miz Dinah said...

I can't wait for retirement. I love sleeping!

Rachel said...

I was really shocked thinking I was going to read about a quickie after eating sandwiches. Pleasantly surprised, or disappointed. I'm not sure which :)

Wendy said...

The recliner's our favorite place to nap, too. It happens frequently.
Blessings,
Wendy

Young Wife said...

My hubs and I (in our 30's) frequently take "pre-bedtime" naps on the couch!
