Talking To Myself

Me: You always have your eyes and ears in the tv.

Him: What?

Me: You never hear a word I say.

Him: What?

Me: What did he just say on the tv?

Him: Silence...

Me: You sleeping?

Him: No I was just resting my eyes.

Me: Are you ready for bed?

Him: No I'm not sleepy.

Him: Snore snore snore...

Me: Come on I'm sleepy lets go to bed.

Reads like a winner..That nap while watching TV is called the pre-nap before they go to bed to get the real nap..Great conversation which will be totally understood by most women..Thanks for letting me know that I placed in the contest..Sara
