Diesel Will Kill Me

Last Friday, after our dinner with DB and Gil, Diesel and Gil broke off and went bar-hopping for a while. Apparently, shots were done. Shots and Diesel are a disastrous combination, so when he stumbled back into the house at 2:30am, he was a happy drunk.

I recently decided that I would tape Diesel’s drunkenness with my little digital camera; partly to expose his behavior and partly for my own amusement. The episode I captured that night was just priceless, and although Diesel himself thought his shenanigans were hilarious, he prohibited me from showing the footage to other people, specifically to his parents.

Being the good wife I am, I completely ignored the “showing the footage to other people” warning and thoroughly disregarded the “my parents” part and sent the video to his mom.

His mom, god bless her, responded to me AND cc’ed Diesel. The first line on her reply read: “We had a good laugh at Tim.”

GULP! Tim e-mails me: “Did you send the video to her???”

Ultimately, that’s what a good daughter-in-law does: she shares the joy and the laughter…even if she has to betray her own husband in the process.
