Because I live with males, I really do talk like this:

Younger Son creeped through the garage to sneak up on The Husband who was coming off a week of early morning shifts and a night of poor sleep.  As Younger Son pounced on The Husband's last nerve, Husband swung around with the screwdriver he was holding fully intending to fight off a dangerous intruder.  Fortunately, Younger Son had stepped back far enough to be out of harm's way.

Later, as they told me about this, Younger Son explained, "I was trying to be a ninja."
"Yeah?" I replied.  "Your ninja better watch out for the Samurai in the future."

My middle is always sneaking up on me and scaring me. What is with these boys?

If I can fake it well enough I say 'You came close to scaring me this time' . . . (Woody to Rex, Toy Story)

Oddly as I was driving to work this morning I was thinking "Ninja=Awesome" pause to think some more then, "Ninjas make everything chocolate"

Roses said...

Oo, Dani, chocolate-covered ninjas!

Roses, my poor wife is the mother of four sons (three of them on their own now). You use great discretion in choosing your terms in such comparison...if you know what I mean! ;)

I once snuck up on a boyfriend, and with his "fight or flight" adrenalin, he swung around an smacked me hard....very hard. Yeeeouchhh!

Needless to say, I don't sneak up on anyone anymore!

When The Husband works late, I usually wake up when I hear his car pull in the driveway and fall back asleep shortly after I hear him lock the door on his way in.
One night, I missed the car and the door and didn't wake up at all. Until... I heard someone moving beside the bed. I shot out of bed and spun to face the intruder.
I actually scared him.

And he worries a little less about me being home alone at night.

Andy: I have no idea what you mean. ??
