10:00 Collin ran 18 miles on a treadmill because he’s really good at watching television (trust me, that’ll make sense if you listen)
11:45 I was smart enough to get dolled up before Collin returned from the gym so he still had to take me out for dinner even though he was tired from running
12:15 I still have a bunch of Oscar movies to watch but we took a break from that serious crap to watch A Good Day to Die Hard
13:48 “Long story four”? I don’t get my husband sometimes
14:05 Next week is going to be a classic episode of the HitchDieds in Cape Town podcast if I Love Lucy is anything to go by.
