People do funky things in their bedrooms. Some more mainstream than others, but, hey, to each their own.
What do you have in your bedroom? Candles? A romantic. Insense? A free spirit, spiritual. More than a normal amount of mirrors? Maybe a little slap with that tickle? or perhaps a vanity issue? Brass pole and trapeze? (Don't laugh or disbelieve. I've seen it! Don't judge either. Trust me, it's not what you think, but it definitely was a "Sweet Baby Jeezus!" moment) Kinky- don't give me a hickey. Leather whips and chains? Beast-o-Freak!
Doc H and I don't have any of those. Well, candles. We used to have those. We are down to one and it is on my side of the bed. It is now used to help calm and soothe, rather than set the mood - HEY! What can I say? It's marriage!
We now have books. Papers. Folders filled with papers. Computers. His laptop, my laptop, his Iphone, my Iphone, my Ipad, his pager, our landline and our dog. Sounds like an inviting place to rest your weary head, doesn't it? At this juncture, this post could splinter into a million different topics, but I would like to draw your attention to Doc H's papers.
Do you see them? Can you picture them in your mind? To me, they are doodles; many times on the backside of a printed document. Sometimes they are on yellow legal paper, torn with a ragged edge. Almost always in blue, fountain ink. Some of these doodles broke my REM cycle when he abruptly sat up in bed, turned on the light, and sketched his doodle while it was fresh in his mind.
It drove me nuts. Yet, I love this about my man. He has a very sexy brain. Every doodle is evidence of his intellect and a reminder of why I fell in love with him in the first place. So, we keep every one of them.
Then one day an interesting thing happened. Doc H came home and said he met an engineer who had worked with the type of technology he would need for one of his doodles to become a reality. Doc H wanted to meet with him at our house to explore his idea to see if it had any legs.
And so our crazy, stressful, eye-rolling, gag me (literally), unbelievable journey began...
