Why I Love Geoff

Last night Geoff and I went to get The Best Pizza Ever with our friends Travis and Lucy. It'd been about a year since we went last time and this time, Lucy is pregnant and unlike last time we did not order beer.

Not fair.

Travis and Lucy were telling us about their recent trip to Lake Tahoe, during which I went to the bathroom and came back and Geoff said to me:

"We gotta go to our family cabin sometime"

Now, Geoff had mentioned his family's (grandpa's) cabin before, but I mean, never said "We should go sometime" so I figured it was a piece of crap that I would hate.

Internet, I don't do well with nature-y stuff like bugs and pitch-black skies under which people commit horrible crimes in isolated cabins.

I know, I'm a lot of fun.

But I was trying to be supportive in front of our friends and so I said "Yeah, that'd be nice".

But he continued on "Yeah it's just not winter ready so it's only good to visit in the summertime, my grandpa bought it in like the 50s for dirt cheap" and I was like "Huh, yeah, I mean, I forgot you guys had that cabin -- I mean, you mentioned it a few times, but I don't even know where it is!"

And he said "Kings Beach, north of the lake" (in a tone that indicated I should know where the f that is).

So I said, "Huh? What lake?"

And he said "Lake Tahoe!"

So I was like "Wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute ... the 'cabin' that you've mentioned to me like 5 times in our entire relationship is ON LAKE TAHOE?"

Internet, this is Kings Beach:

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

4 years. We have known each other (online - in person is May 20) for FOUR YEARS. I gave birth to his child and yet he never mentioned that his family cabin is ON LAKE TAHOE!

I want you to remember the above when I tell you this next part ...

While going through some old pictures on our cell phones the other night, reminiscing about how much Phoebe has grown up, Geoff found a pic he took of Phoebe next to her pumpkin pirate on Halloween (will have to post pics from my mom's camera because she took them, too) ... and he said -- I am not kidding you:

"Is that your Grandma holding up the baby?"

No, Internet. It was in fact his wife.

THE SAME WIFE WHO IS MORE THAN A LITTLE BIT SENSITIVE ABOUT HER WEIGHT, BUT WHO CAN'T DIET WHILE HER HUSBAND IS IN TOWN BECAUSE HE BUYS ICE CREAM AND SNACKS IN BULK AT COSTCO SO I MIGHT AS WELL GIVE UP FOR NOW!

My grandma.

In his defense, it was an EXTREMELY unflattering picture (to. say. the. least.) of my outstretched arm, and from the side my boob looked saggy AND enormous (let's face it: they are currently both and will probably be the former for the rest of my life, you're welcome for the breastfeeding, Phoebe) and my face was hidden.

House on the lake in Tahoe.

And I swear to you, that man will not mistake me for my grandmother while I am sunning myself on the lake this summer.

Mostly because he is not invited.

It's ON THE LAKE?? Yeah, I think that's a detail you would have remembered. Too funny.

so he forgot to tell you that at this cabin you can eat, drink, fart, and then drive two minutes to go gambling in Nevada where you can continue to eat, drink and fart? he's fired

He never mentioned it was ON THE LAKE. Not only can you eat, drink and fart and then drive to Nevada to gamble, eat, drink and fart, but you can also go take a dip in the lake and cool yourself off if you want and then WALK BACK TO THE HOUSE FOR MORE BEER.

My bags are already packed.
