In-Depth Thoughts from The Girl
Well, here we go again! The newsletter is semi late coming out because… urgh writers block?
I dunno. I’ve been hammering away all week with work, baby stuff, sales, and prepping for the Open House, so when it finally came to the newsletter this week, there was a vast nothingness in my brain. Honestly, I think there are just tumbleweeds blowing around up there.
And it’s from this vast feeling of nothingness I had a VERY embarrassing and more than slightly hilarious realization.

Ray and I were discussing our evening plans. AKA, how much MORE work we would be doing after dinner. When I said “My brain hurts so much, I just want to go home to Netflix and Chill”. To which Ray started snickering.
Ray: “That was unexpected”.
Me: “Huh? Why? We have a ton of shows to catch up on"
Ray: (still snickering) “Oh, you ACTUALLY want to watch Netflix?”
Me: (irritated) “YES. I want to Netflix and CHILL”
Ray: “Oh… ummm… you know that’s not actually what Netflix and Chill means right?”
Me: (more irritated than before) “What the hell are you talking about??”
Ray: “I’m just going to let the internet clear that one up for you.”
Me: (Grabs Phone)
Ray: (Still silently snickering)
Me: “Oh no. Oh noooooooo. Oh my GAWD!!”
Ray: (Now just outright laughing AT me) “Have you said that out loud to others?”
Me: “Oh my god Ray!!!! How come NO ONE MENTIONED THIS?????”
Ray: “...How many people have you said this to??”
Me: “Ummmm. Well. You know how I was kinda, you know, PREGNANT the last few months and super tired. Yeah, well, I definitely said that to more than a few people! Like while rubbing basketball belly - Just going home now to Netflix and CHILL!”
You guys!!! Seriously, we were laughing so hard, tears were streaming!! I am super starting to feel like the old, out of touch mom already! How is this happening???
I instantly texted my sister DEMANDING to know if she knew what Netflix and Chill meant. I was met with a question mark response: "?" Then a “ummm yeah, it’s not watching Netflix…”.
She did make me feel better, explaining it’s probably more of a North American thing. So I’m going to go with that lofty idea to feel a little less embarrassed. And for the record, if you somehow were talking to me (ever) and I told you what my plans were for that night, PLEASE know, I was literally going home to watch (likely) re-runs of Grey’s Anatomy.
That’s all I have for now folks. I truly hope you’re sitting with a full belly on your couch in stretchy pants, laughing “with” me on this one. Maybe I should actually use that Twitter account after all.
Happy Thanksgiving weekend to all of those who celebrated yesterday and this weekend. Everyone else, happy Friday.
