My better half is European and thinks that the telephone should only be used between the hours of 9 am and 7 pm (or 09:00 and 19:00 as he calls it), calls outside those hours signal a crisis has occurred. "What happened?" is how he answers the phone outside office hours. Also my man works hard, sometimes he works ridiculously long hours. Yesterday he staggered off the red eye from California, caught a cab home, showered, walked the dogs and drove into work. On the way home he drove thirty minutes out of his way to pick up the cat's antibiotics. By the time he had eaten dinner he was wiped and fell asleep watching the Daily Show.
I managed to persuade him he'd be more comfortable in bed and I think he sleepwalked up there. When I checked half an hour later he was fast asleep with two cats on his pillow. So tired, so cute.
So what happened a little later is going to require a HUGE APOLOGY from me for letting my disease interfere with his sleep. I'm truly sorry. I'm sorry that I chose an endocrinologist who phoned me at 9:15 pm to suggest a change to my Lantus dose, waking him up, and forcing him to get up and walk down a flight of stairs to hand me the phone. (He doesn't know how to transfer calls, bless him).
I knew he was pissed when he handed me the phone without covering the mouth piece and said "it's for you, it must be an emergency at this time of night". Oops.
