The story behind the name:

One evening, at the Old Broadway Grill in Fargo, North Dakota, my brother caught the end of a Mountain Dew commercial. In the commercial, a Mountain Dew drinker was riding a shark in the ocean. My brother exclaimed in surprise, not realizing that it was a commercial. When I told him he declared "All I saw was a guy coming out of the shower with a shark." Of course, he meant water, but the idea of showering with sharks has been with me ever since.

Happy New Year!!

So, it's 10:30 p.m. on New Year's Eve. Mark and I are getting ready to do what parents of children under five find the most exciting... go to sleep.

In the spirit of starting an organized 2013, I cleaned out and organized our dressers yesterday afternoon. Part of that process had me moving some of Mark's stuff to a different drawer - one of the bottom ones. Before you get mad, I will say that there are three bottom drawers and my stuff is in two of them. I thought it was only fair that he have a bottom drawer as well.

I was snuggled into bed, ready to turn off the lights. Mark couldn't find his pajama pants (I'm pretty sure part of Mark hates that I'm writing about his pajama pants. However, if he doesn't want me to write about them, he shouldn't be so funny.)

"Bottom drawer on the left side," I tell him.

He opens the drawer and groans.

"It hurts my back to open that drawer." Whiner.

He crawls into bed.

"I mean, it hurts especially bad because... because... my back already hurts."

I look at him.

"Honey, you are so manly."

"Pure man."


Happy New Year, Everyone!
