Meg is leaving on Saturday to stay with her father while her mother is on vacation for ten days. So once again I’ve got the place to myself for awhile.
I love living with my lovely wife and I try to be respectful of her as my roommate. So having a week to myself is a chance to indulge in the type of activates that I normally avoid or minimize. My plans for my alone time this week are coincidently the topic of Friday 5.
Top 5 Things I Can Enjoy When I’m Home Alone
1. Not wearing pants
I’m not even going to try and claim that I wear pants all the time when my wife is home. However, I do try and regulate how often I parade around the house in my drawers. I realize that sitting on the couch in boxers tends to inadvertently give my wife a view of my junk, so I usually try and wear a pair of shorts or track pants when I’m home. But for the next ten days, it’s no pants for me.1
2. Eating Seafood
Megan is a seafood hater. She hates the taste and she hates the smell. As a seafood lover I almost never bring it into the house. I see a giant pile of jumbo shrimp in my future.
3. Getting my B&B on
I tend to turn in to Beavis and Butthead when I’m watching television alone. I most watch dumb comedies or movies and laugh like an idiot.
4. Drink cheap beer
I like all kinds of beer, but I usually drink decent beer around the house to keep the smell to a minimum. So if you’re planning on coming over in the next ten days, better BYOB unless you’re cool with Busch Light.
5. Losing the bet from Seinfeld’s “The Contest”
Let’s just say I don’t plan on being Master of my Domain and leave it at that.
1 This does not include when company is present. So you can come over and not have to fear seeing my nether-regions.
