Dear Boyfriend, Sorry ‘Bout the Crazy.


[I know I said I was taking today off but I wanted to post this today, so I’m taking tomorrow off. Back to normal schedule Wednesday. Also, linking up with yeahwrite again. And Pour Your Heart Out]

Dear Boyfriend,

I’m sorry that when you tried to have an adult conversation with me on Friday, I totally freaked out. 

And I’m really sorry that I spent the rest of the weekend systematically torturing you with my insecurity. 

Also, I’m sorry about the sleep situation on Friday night/Saturday morning.



He really was having a nightmare. I swear.




And I’m definitely sorry about the two hours of facetiming (videochatting) on Sunday night.






Et cetera.

Sometimes, I’m insecure and neurotic. But I'll do better. Because you’re the best guy I've ever been with. Not just because you really are wonderful in a bunch of ways and you tolerate the crazy and you reassure me over and over again when I need it.

But more importantly, because you haven’t murdered me yet.  

Love, 
Me (your adorably neurotic girlfriend)

I watched Twilight this weekend.

  5. Aww poor Boyfriend. This is a very nice PDA... Public Display of Apology.

    ACCEPT IT BOYFRIEND and LIME her a lot!

  6. I could tell this is from the heart, Gia. I'm sure boyfriend will forgive you. Despite your self proclaimed neurotic behavior and insecurity, I think you're a good person. When you really care about someone, sometimes that side just comes out.

    Secret: I'm still jealous when my husband talk to other girls sometimes. Even though I know he'll never do anything.

    You are not alone. <3

  7. Look at you being all cute and remorseful. I am neurotic every single day of my life. It's part of my charm.

    ReplyDelete
  8. If my wife isn't neurotic, I worry something's wrong with her. Which makes me neurotic. It's a vicious cycle. As long as boyfriend can tolerate your neurotic behavior, you've got a keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Ah the apologetic blog post, the modern equivalent of "I'm Sorry Flowers". At least you have the introspection required to realize you need to apologize, a lot of us resist that humbling exercise.

    ReplyDelete
  10. We all get a little cray cray sometimes. I feel like a blimp lately so I've been extra whiney. You are not alone. Also, I don't believe that you watched Twilight. Which one? The newest one? I've watched it twice since it came out on DVD. I know.

    1. Yep, the newest. My sister bought it. I almost passed out during the childbirth scene. BLEHH.

  11. Awww.. we all drive our boyfriends crazy, don't worry about it! Team boyfriend all the way!! (Or, in actual twilight terms, team Jacob.. those muscles...!)

    ReplyDelete
  12. AWww, you're allowed to drive your boyfriend nuts! That's what he's there for. But shh, don't tell him I said that! hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  13. Neurosis are just highly evolved early warning systems for problems that haven't happened yet. Also- I imagine tos post going down in real life like an episode of "Whitney".

    ReplyDelete
  14. Reminds me of...me and my wife! lol

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sounds like you two need to purchase that book on Male-Female Relationships: "Does This Make Me Look Fat?"
    Seriously, if we (and I mean men of my gender) sound like we're being dense, we usually are. And when we say we're fine, we usually are, too.
    But, we're worth it. Five o'clock shadow notwithstanding.
    And you women are worth it. Because you DON'T have five o'clock shadow.
    OK, going to take a nap before Mrs. Penwasser comes home from work

  16. Ah yes, that exact conversation happens weekly in my house. Even married it doesn't always stop the crazy. If anything be prepared for even more crazy if Boyfriend ever puts a ring on it.

    1. Put a what on it? WTF JJ, are you crazy?!

    2. We are all little crazy. That is why you love us so much, silly you...

  17. I used to be neurotic that this in my 20's. Then I stopped caring. TEAM APATHY FTW!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It sounds like you better never let him go.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I LOVE it that you apologized to Boyfriend! I'm sure he'll do the same as necessary. And I really like the Team Boyfriend sign. And I'm glad neither one of you has murdered the other yet. I'm just not a real big fan of murdering.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aww Gia!

    Like Vapid Vixen, I did some nuerotic stuff in my early 20s too. But unlike you I probably wouldn't have apologized.

    Boyfriend will get over it, how could he not accept a blogapology with cartoons?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh man, sometimes there's just no getting past the insecurity of the day. Lovely apology, though. For real.

    ReplyDelete
  22. p.s. Love the Zazzle shop! Isn't it fun to design your own stuff?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I doubt if you really did anything wrong. We women tend to think we're to blame for everything. Blame yourself less; fuss over him less; kiss and cuddle more.

    Love,
    Janie

  24. Either you've been calling my gf behind my back and giving her assignments in "neurotic," or it's a common bond among The Sisterhood...

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've spent the past two days pestering the husband because he looks mad. Which he tells me is just his face. But I know better - if I continue to pester, he'll BE mad and then his face will match his emotions.

    I WIN!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I think boyfriend is lucky to have someone crazy like you.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This strikes me as both a great post and a great apology, but then you went and ruined it with Twilight! It is so very very very terrible!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Okay, this was hilariously awesome. I'm so glad you moved back your vacation day to link up with yeah write.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Crazy used to annoy the hell out of me. Then I met belligerent, and then, her sister, Ms. Reproachful.

    After awhile, Crazy starts to look like the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I really love that duvet on your bed because I believe everything you draw and I believe that you actually own this.

    But other than that, hearing "are you okay?" drives me CRAZY. That is what turns my neurosis on. So, I feel for boyfriend. But if I were boyfriend, and I read this post, I'd totally forgive you.

    ;)

    1. Lorraine I am kinda feeling your vibe here. When I'm feeling fine and then all of the sudden someone says "are you okay?" (and I am okay, again it's just the way my face looks) I then turn the question in to a bleak analysis of my insides and ask myself "am I okay? I don't know. I don't look okay, so probably my life is going nowhere and I should jump out in front of a train.

      Delete
    2. I understand this. In theory.

      Delete
    3. Oh also yep that is what my comforter looks like! I'll have to take a good pic for you gyus

      Delete
  31. I'm with Lorraine. I can be in a great mood, until someone asks me if I'm okay, and then i'm immediately mad. I get asked "Are you okay?" a lot which I've decided is because I'm usually very talkative so when I feel like being quiet for a bit, people assume there is something wrong. Which, like I said, there was nothing wrong until I was asked that question....

    ReplyDelete
  32. People usually tend to ask me those same questions, "are you okay" "you look upset, what's wrong" when I am not smiling. Then I have to awkwardly explain to them that's just the way my face looks.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hopefully he reads this blog post and forgives you. :P

    ReplyDelete
  34. All of us have done this before, most of us did not have fancy bedlinen!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ok....so you're a teeny bit crazy. (we all have a bit of crazy in us). I love crazies. The crazier the better!

    This was SO GOOD. SO funny.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm certain that he gets you by now. My husband isn't the best at emotions and what not (which makes me neurotic so don't feel bad) so I always ask him the same thing repeatedly just like you did here only to get the same monotone response. "I said I'm fine". "Still fine". "Still still fine". And so forth. Thank you Jebus that we're all neurotic together!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love this! Neurotic people of the world unite! I could've written this to my boyfriend ten years ago. He's my husband now. And I still drive him crazy pretty much all the time. It's part of our charm!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hopefully Boyfriend and my hubby never get together and talk, because I have a feeling they'd have a lot of notes to compare. It's hard not to be neurotic, isn't it? Even if you're aware of it, that doesn't mean you can stop it.

    ReplyDelete
  39. OHMYGOD you channeled (did I spell that right?) the younger me!!!! GET OUT OF MY HEAD!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hahaha!! Love the illustrations. So, does your boyfriend read your blog?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I actually find this really sweet and funny at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Oh geez. If that is your neurotic, then I definitely deserve the title "Deranged!" :) It happens. You're awesome. So is Boyfriend. All will be well. And I also watched myself some Twilight this weekend. Yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Crazy is the new normal. My imaginary friend confirmed it.

    Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well, I think we've all been there before. What's done is done. Videochatting?

    ReplyDelete
  45. LOL - great post. Is there any woman who hasn't ever done this or at least felt this way before? If so, she's a better woman than I :) Team Boyfriend!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I've never done this. Well not since last weekend. We've been together 15 years and married for 8 of them. He gets it now, most of the time. I hope.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You are way too funny! Love it!

    I just wanted you to know that I have nominated you for an award so please read my latest post. Thanks for the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  48. The above episode - de ja vu after watching ring movie. My hubby got overwhelmed and never allowed me to see scary movies again.

    ReplyDelete
  49. My girlfriend used to do the "what are you thinking" thing, until I told her I was thinking of strangling her... she stopped, and for some reason, stuck around!

    Too too funny. And the reason we don't murder you? The bewbs.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My husband always says the reason that they put up with the crazy is because we smell nice, have smooth skin and look good naked. I'd say thats a good balance.
    (And for the record...I was all sorts of crazy this weekend. Must have been something in the air)

    ReplyDelete
  51. See I think they all need to be tested and he's passing so really being neurotic is just a relationship-strengthener. You should write a book.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hahaha love the drawings! Your boyfriend is definitely a keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Your transcription of an adult conversation is scarily accurate. Have you been eavesdropping at my house, where conversations between me and Husband have been along the lines of "YOU'RE MAD!" "I AM NOT MAD!" "ARE YOU MAD?" "NO I"M NOT MAD." "YOU SEEM MAD." ... and yes, we are yelling. Why are people so crazy? I mean the fact that more of us don't kill the people we love strikes me sometimes as a complete bloody miracle.

    ReplyDelete
  54. LOL I was like this last night! How do they put up with us?xx

    ReplyDelete
  55. teehee. I always tell my husband he got lucky with me because there are sooo many crazier women than me out there. All women are a little neurotic. It's just to what degree. Sounds like your man is a keeper.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Oooh,that sounds vaguely familiar...a long time ago, on a phonecall far, far away...

    ReplyDelete
  57. I love your cartoons! So funny!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I need to visit your blog more often. Your pictures crack me up! I'm glad you found a good guy. :)
