The Domino Effect

My high school friend sent this email to around 18 of us yesterday and within 15 minutes my inbox was flooded with requests for a "Girls Weekend Away". Needless to say, we are now going away as a group in March.

Why females should avoid a "Girls Night Out" after they are married.

The other night I was invited out for a night with the girls. I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!'

Well, the hours passed and the margaritas went down way too easily. Around 3 a.m., a bit loaded, I headed for home.

Just as I got in the door, the cuckoo clock in the hallway started up and cuckooed 3 times.

Quickly, realizing my husband would probably wake up, I cuckooed another 9 times. I was really proud of myself for coming up with such a quick-witted solution, in order to escape a possible conflict with him. (Even when totally smashed. 3 cuckoos plus 9 cuckoos totals 12 cuckoos =MIDNIGHT!)

The next morning, my husband asked me what time I got in, I told him 'MIDNIGHT'. He didn't seem pissed off in the least.

Whew, I got away with that one!

Then he said, "We need a new cuckoo clock."

When I asked him why, he said, "Well, last night our clock cuckooed three times, then said 'Oh, shit.' Cuckooed 4 more times, cleared its throat, cuckooed another three times, giggled, cuckooed twice more, and then tripped over the coffee table and farted."

I think the deal should be; nobody squawks about the time their "other" comes home from an outing w/ their pals. Husband or wife. We're all grown ups here. Even when we fart.

If cuckoo clocks farted you just know I'd have one as an alarm clock. Because there can be nothing more joyful to wake up to than a farting cuckoo darting out of a clock with its ass in your face! :)

Margaritas are evil. And to be worshipped.

Haha, that was brilliant. You sound as if maybe you could actually use a girls night out for realz. Just beware mixing too much tequila and Mexican food right before bed. Trust me on this one!

Oh, I should know better than to read your stuff when I drink coffee. Ah, well.. my monitor needed cleaning anyway.
