this insomnia thing is getting out of control.

when i can't sleep i like to pass the time 
by writing messages
on the walls of our bathtub.

in the beginning,
cory and i had a cute
time traveler's wife-esque dialogue.
i'd write something he'd find before he left for work
and he'd write something i'd find when i woke up. 

i had a particularly rough night last week.
i tossed and turned.
i adjusted, i twisted, i plumped pillows,
i beat my high score on tetris.

with nothing left to do,
i went to the bathroom.
i sat on the edge of the tub 
and looked at my blank canvas.
once i started,
i couldn't stop.
when cory got back from work that day,
i asked him what he thought about my "art."
he looked at me and said,
it went from being cute and sweet 
to 'a beautiful mind'. 
i opened up the shower curtain
and got a little scared.
i literally thought you were a crazy person."

moral of the story:
bathtub messages are only cute
when done in moderation
and don't include drawings titled, 
"sad running man."

This is like trying to decode ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.

"I miss you when you sleep" I kinda love that.
