This is the email I woke up to

From: Dave
To: Elle
Date: Wed, Aug 13, 2008 at 8:49am
Subject: Hmm, what should I name this?

I'm gonna go with "Queen Elle." :-)

Note: Right edge of bed not visible because the comforter is now covering a good two feet of it.

Yep, that's me in there. Dave wakes up an hour before I do and, apparently, this is how he chose to spend his time this morning.

I might as well admit it. I'm a cover-stealer. Actually, I feel like the covers are weighted on one side and they just happen to slide more and more towards my side of the bed through no fault of my own. (The whole "no fault of my own" is kind of a life theme for me.)

Anyway, this was the IM conversation that followed...


Me: You little fucker, you took a picture of me this morning??

Dave: Yes ma'am.
Dave: I could set a bomb off in the apartment and you wouldn't know. I even opened the blinds to get more light. You didn't even shift.

Me: (...)

Dave: The funniest part is that you fight me when I try to get more covers, not knowing you have about six feet of covers on your other side. You always grab from me, not the other side.

Me: Well.
(say something brilliant...)
Me: I DO WHAT I WANT.
(well done.)

Dave: I'm not kidding you when I say I woke up shivering this morning because I had no covers.

Me: Maybe you should be more proactive in your cover preservation.

Dave: I tried to take some. You took them back.
Dave: I'd rather freeze to death than piss you off in the morning.


Smart man.

hahah i do the same exact thing...it gets cold and the bf is always to hot, so i should be allowed to steal the covers!

Smart man indeed. I'm a cover stealer myself.

That's kind of amazing. I'm totally a cover stealer too.

I'm a cover stealer too. This is why my boyfriend (a Dave also) and I currently have two blankets on the bed. :) Only one sheet though, so I snag that.
