"Reasons Why My Girlfriend Is Crying"

People who love the internet! I have a treat for you. 

Some of you may have seen it - it went viral pretty quickly - but after seeing someone link to this amazing Tumblr - "Reasons My Son Is Crying" - I read the entire thing and couldn't stop laughing. 

It's a blog written by a guy who takes a picture and writes a one sentence explanation of why his adorable toddler happens to be crying at that exact moment. Genius! You have to read it if you haven't -  my favorites are "I wouldn't let him drown in a pond" and "Grandma wouldn't let him spill ice cold water on her." 

That night I went home and showed Ram the website. He also thought it was hilarious and we laughed about it and what a good idea it was... and also how R had enough material of his own to write a very similar type of blog - "Reasons Why My Girlfriend is Crying."

The following showed up in my email inbox last night:

"Reasons Why My Girlfriend Is Crying"

I told her we couldn't buy a French Bulldog right now.

I told her she could not steal a random passer-by's French Bulldog.

Her sister made a passive-aggressive comment about what she's wearing.

After she told me not to buy her chocolate's on Valentine's Day, I didn't buy her chocolate's on Valentine's Day.

I wouldn't let her empty my closet and use it for storage space for her wedges.

I let another driver pass in front of us while driving and now she thinks its symbolic of how I let people take advantage of me.

I was driving too slow and now I'm driving too fast to compensate.

The non-fat, iced chai is from Coffee Bean, not Starbucks.

She asked me to bring home a Fudgey the Chocolate Whale from Carvel and I thought she was kidding.  She wasn't kidding.

I misspelled her middle name.

I told her gossiping about people she didn't like from her sorority was rude.

I have no idea why my girlfriend is crying.

I gave her a cup of water with no ice cubes.

I turned the volume of the Train song she likes (and I hate) from ear-splittingly loud to mind-numbingly loud.

New Girl was a repeat.

Her straightener fell on the floor of the bathroom because it was left on the edge of the bathroom sink.

I have turned down her idea that we dress as Fran and Mr. Sheffield from "The Nanny" for Halloween.

She is out of Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

This list fills me with utter joy. He knows me so well. And while some of these may be SLIGHT exaggerations, some of them are... not.

Start this tumblr asap. Also, please please please dress as Fran & Mr. Sheffield from the Nanny for Halloween. That would be AMAZING.

Rami is hysterical. And I'm assuming that the list is full of the reasons he loves you. :)

H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S!!!! Literally LOL! The fact that all that is true (and yes, we all know it is) and that he still loves you in spite of - or maybe BECAUSE of? - all of that, means that you really have found your match! :-) Oy!! Still laughing!!

Hysterical! Need to check this out but appreciating it none the less. I'm so sad, ps, if I'd be out of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I actually love it to much to keep in the house. :) {though cin. chex... amazingly similar!}.

OH MY GOD THIS IS HILARIOUS!!!!!! I was literally crying laughing OUT LOUD. Your boyfriend is a legitimate COMEDIAN. I read this out loud to my boyfriend and without knowing ANY background he just goes "Okay so, I need to talk to this guy." This is clear proof that we are meant to be friends because we sound identical-- the iced chai from starbucks versus coffee bean?! DYING! coffee bean is my favorite place on earth but ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY FOR COFFEE!!!!!!! I WOULD KILL MYSELF IF ALEX BROUGHT ME ONE OF THEIR ICED CHAIS BECAUSE THE ONLY ICED CHAI I WILL DRINK IS FROM STARBUCKS. AND ALSO, THE STRAIGHTENER OFF THE EDGE OF THE BATHROOM SINK! dying. don't know you and love you two.
