Friday the 13th

This was our plan for the day. I would go to work. Tim would work a half day, and then get a deep tissue massage at the Burke Williams spa. Then afterward our friends Tom & Christine and Justin & Courtney were going to come over, go to the Vietnamese restaurant near our house, and then hang out afterward where we would play games, drink and sinfully indulge ourselves in Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

Well the day went pretty much according to schedule for me, but after getting back from his massage, Tim started feeling really nauseous. Apparently the deep tissue massage is supposed to release toxins, so that might be the reason he had such a strong reaction. He feels fine now, by the way.

But not wanting to spoil the rest of the night for all of us, he encouraged us to continue on. Which is exactly what we did.

After two rounds of Clue, we switched to 1990s Trivial Pursuit, which is surprisingly easy — except for the blue category since none of us knew a lick about sports.

Between the Vietnamese food, drinks and Krispy Kremes, we were all happy as clams.

Of course, you don't know a lick about sports. That's because you're all essentially girly men!

That's the area where my husband totally kicks my ass.
