SMBHD - Steals My Bookmarks

I got my MIL's blessing for the SMBHD segments when we were in England, so that's good. She actually says she enjoys them. Probably because he tormented her for so many years and she can relate.

Have I mentioned I married a 5 year old? My BH has this ridiculous love of removing bookmarks from my books when I'm not looking... and also when I am. Sometimes, he will specifically seek out my book when I'm not in the room and take my bookmark out entirely... and sometimes he will just move it to a completely different section of the book. I never used to keep track of what page I was on, now I have to! I have to at least get a general idea of where I am in the book every time I put it down or else he'll catch me when I least expect it and I'll have no clue where to pick it up. When I pick it up and he's done this, he is SO proud of himself. I wish I could take a picture with my eyes so you could see this joyful/devilish look on his face, and record the he's-so-damn-proud-of-himself laughter that comes afterwards. I feel like typing it just doesn't do it justice.

He also really REALLY enjoys taking my bookmark out when I AM looking. Or, in the most recent case, I set my book down, open to my page (so no bookmark), and he grabbed it. I swear he had the look on his face of "Problem Child" or my family dog Boston who will grab something she knows she's not supposed to have and looks at you with this knowing, devilish look in her eyes... yeah, that's what my husband had the other night. We were both standing on our respective sides of the bed, he grabbed the book and stared me down with this devilish smirk on his face. I think I threatened him with everything I could think of - bodily harm, not cooking for him for a week, making him sleep in the guest bedroom... I swear we had a standoff for like ten minutes before he finally set it down - I won this round, but this has happened before, and will happen again, and I know I won't win them all... man, I've really got to think of some things to do to get him back. But he won't take it well at all. He can certainly dish it out, but can't take it back! I keep telling him it's like the Justin Timberlake song, "What goes around comes around." Oh, hm, I guess I could always get him back by posting things about him on a blog... did I mention he loves JT? True story. He says JT "throws some serious shapes." Which, in American, means "dances well".

In conclusion, I think this is a very good justification for why I need a Kindle for Christmas. :)
