I like my title better!
I returned home eight days later at three in the morning. The boys had left on a lamp, there was a welcome-home note on the counter, the house was in perfect order. When I opened the door to my bedroom, I laughed out loud.
There was a man in my bed!
A pair of blue jeans had been carefully laid out, with dirty socks for feet. A T-shirt made up the chest. Rolled-up posters of Kevin Costner worked for arms, mittens served as hands. The head was a Dave Berry book, Dave Berry's Guide to Marriage And/Or Sex, propped against my pillow. A baseball cap topped everything off. And stacked on the T-shirt? A pile of presents!
Nothing untoward had happened. My boys had even missed me and gone out of their way, with their brand of humor and love, to welcome me home.
