Long story short: Big Dude snores. He snores LOUD. He snores all night long. He sleeps well. I sleep well … on nights when he is out of town. So Big Dude went to see a doc – a snoring specialist, nonetheless.
And with all the fantastic inventions, discoveries, and medical advancements of the 20th & 21st centuries, this is what the doc prescribed:
Earplugs. I’m thinking he (the doc) must think I have a better sense of humor about this than I do. Or else he never would have sent home the Pretty Pink Pony Pool Princess plugs. Maybe I’d find this more amusing if I wasn’t so cranky due to sleep deprivation.
[confession: I'm not really that cranky. I do ok with little amounts of sleep. And I'd rather not sleep with Big Dude next to me than sleep well while he's in some other room. But goshdarnit, can't someone somewhere come up with some nifty invention to curb snoring. Such an inventor could make a lotta money.]
