Real Life Conversations: Whose Are Those?

So this week is baby announcement hubbub, but in real life baby updates will come about once a week, possibly more if I’m rounding a milestone or something remarkable happens. The rest of the time will be regularly scheduled programming. Hopefully in a few weeks I’ll even be able to bring back Flo and try out some new noms. At this point we are slowly attempting to put our lives back together after the hurricane of oh-man-we-are-pregnant-and-wow-this-is-not-how-I-thought-it-would-be-ness. So, it’s little wonder that this happened yesterday morning.

I shuffled into the bathroom after sitting up in bed eating apples and peanut butter (pro tip: it helps greatly with keeping pregnant blood sugar even AND has the added bonus of aiding in the consto wars). Kamel was chattering at me, or singing, or something per usual. As I turned around and looked at him (in his boxers and undershirt) in the bathroom light I noticed something amiss:

“Kamel… those aren’t your underwear.”

Kamel looks down at his purple-ish boxers when all of his are either grey or black.

“They aren’t mine?” he says.

I laugh. “No! They are purple!”

“Well… they were in the clean clothes…”

“Whose are those?” I ask.

“Mine now!” he says.

This is what happens when you have shared laundry with our entire apartment section. Some poor fella is wandering around without his underpants. And I know who has em now…

One year ago we made Sarah’s Shredded Chicken Tacos in the slow cooker for the first time ever. And it was AMAZING.

  1. Hahahhaa, for a second I thought he was wearing YOUR purple undies…

    • Me too!! And I was thinking–how did he not notice?? :P

      But I also love how unfazed he was by the fact that he was wearing a STRANGER’S underwear. I think my reaction would have been along the lines of “OMG OMG EW GET IT OFF ME!” Even though they’re clean. Rational? Not a bit ;)

      • Not just unphased, but totally claiming new ownership! That had me laughing so hard.

        At least they were freshly laundered!

  2. Hahahaha!!! I think I would pay good money to see Kamel prance around in my underwear. Also, that would have made an even better story.

  3. Love it!

  4. Tell him to take those off! Some other guys’ junk was in them! Eeeewwwwww!

    • I can only control so much… and then I just give it up to the universe. haha

  5. Bahahaha! Oh Kamel!! Also, gross. Dude, you’re wearing someone elses underpants!!!

    • He should be ashamed. And yet…. somehow still proud.

    • Hahaha but they had gone through a full wash! Clean and mine :)

      • They might be clean, but they have still had someone else’s balls in them. :p

      • @Kamel, and they are purple, wasn’t that one of your favorite colors ?

  6. Hahah, I understand the grossed-out-ness, but at the same time, it was already too late.

    *laughs some more. Shaking head*

Who the hell is she?


Lauren

I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
