A couple nights ago I woke up in the middle of the night and dragged my tired body out of bed to go potty. Don't worry, I don't lay toilet paper down on the seats in my own house ;) Anyway, the layout of our bedroom/bathroom is like this: there is a door way with no door that goes straight from the bedroom to the double sinks. Keep walking straight and you'll find yourself in the area with the toilet and tub/shower. There is a door that separates the "bathroom" from the sinks. Make sense? But if you don't walk straight into the "bathroom" you can turn left and you find yourself in our closet. Again, there is no door separating the closet from the sinks or bedroom. And the closet curves to the right so you can't see our clothes from the mirror above the sinks. Make sense? :) So if either one of us get up in the middle of the night we don't turn on any lights until we close the door to the bathroom because the lights will shine right on the bed.
Back to my story.... I flush the toilet and turn off the light, then I open the door and go to wash my hands. All the sudden I hear a wrapper crinkling in the closet.... OH MY GOSH! I start freaking out because it is pitch black and Eric is dead asleep. INTRUDER! I start running for the light that is TWO sinks away from me (so far away when you're in a panic) and I slam my knee into the door way. Awesome. I flip on the light to find ERIC standing in our closet looking at me like I'm a crazy person. I am about to fall over from a heart attack when he asks me what the heck my problem is?? Ha ha (I laugh now, but I wasn't laughing then) I wanted to kill him! I told him that I thought a stranger was in our closet! Apparently he wasn't sleeping good that night so he was getting some ear plugs (I totally don't snore. Promise) to see if that would help him sleep better. Needless to say, the man got in big trouble for not turning on any lights and scaring the crap out of me! Actually, or I should say honestly, I started crying and told him he was so mean for trying to scare me on purpose.... then I crawled back into bed and fell asleep. I don't handle stressful situations well when I'm half asleep, ha ha! Please tell me this has happened to someone else??
