Last week I posted about my plan to kick Kiefer’s procrastinating butt into gear with Operation Pickle Juice.
I’m happy to report Operation PJ is complete.
I had forgotten all about Operation PJ until I was standing in the kitchen, and a contraction tightened and turned my stomach into an overinflated basketball.
Thoughtsy: Geez. What did that book say to do to make contractions go away?
Kiefer: Sit down! You’ve been on your feet too much.
Sitting down and taking breaks during pregnancy has been difficult for me. So as I sat there waiting for the contraction to pass, my mind looked for something to do.
Operation Pickle Juice!
So I splashed some water on my crotch, threw some pickle juice on the floor, and… began to chicken out.
- What if Kiefer just thought I peed myself?
- All I could smell was pickle juice. He’d be onto me within a few feet of the kitchen.
- How would I keep a straight face?
Man up! I told myself.
Thoughtsy: Uh…Kiefer? I need you to come here.
It was the “need” that got his attention. He rounded the corner, looked at my wet pants, and said…
Kiefer: Is your water leaking?
Thoughtsy: ::dramatic pause with look of terror::
…Just kidding! It’s ok. It’s water and pickle juice.
Kiefer: Phew! Oh…you’re in so much trouble.
Thoughtsy: I love you?
Kiefer: How long have you been planning this?
Thoughtsy: Like a week.
Kiefer: You mean it was premeditated? Big trouble….
Thoughtsy: I love you a lot?
