Cutie Hooties

No, it is not the name of a new boy band. It is an example of late-night (see sleepy-induced silliness) movie inspirado.

Rob and I watched the movie Premonition with Sandra Bullock on Saturday night. Small spoiler alert....a few plot points but no big secrets revealed in the following.

In the movie, Sandra Bullock tells her husband in one scene that she dreamed he is going to die. He goes out and increases their insurance policy.

After we climb into bed:
Rob: You aren't going to wake up in the morning and tell me you dreamed I died are you.
Me: No.
Rob: Because I haven't increased our insurance policies.
Me: We have no long as you don't have a potential mistress out there. I know there are some cutie hooties at work.
Rob: What is a cutie hootie? That sounds like some kind of whacked up breakfast cereal. Eat cutie hooties, part of a complete breakfast.
Me: Yeah, and the cereal is shaped like owls.
Rob: I can see the ad slogan: WHO starts your day off right?
Me: Go to sleep. We've hit bottom now.

How the thought train jumps tracks.

Ha ha! That sounds like one of OUR late night bed conversations. The later it gets, the sillier we get, and the more loud laughing there is. It's great. I love it.

Perhaps the slogan shoudl be: Hoo ends your day off right?!! (Cereal specifically for night-owls!)

And I'd be registering that name and concept right now...because some idea-starved cereal marketer is bound to stumble onto it and decide that this is a complete winner!

Hi Melinda,

Wanted to drop by and say hello, Noel and I get so tired at night we have bizzare conversations as well! We have been watching Srubs for months (an episode a night from DVD) so that always makes for funny late night conversations.

Thanks for dropping by I always appreciate it.

You should definitely copyright that. If some cereal manufacturer doesn't snap it up, a soft toy maker will for sure.

Our latest little laugh in the bed episode involved us working out ways that we could be embarrassingly drunk and offensive at the SIL's anti-alcohol wedding -not that we ever would really! But we were debating the merits of me trying to tongue-kiss all the men there and Fixit offering to fight anyone who didn't drink on the grounds that it was un-Australian. Made us laugh anyway.
