Procrastination King and Queen!

Ben is taking an English class right now and he hates english. So, we made a deal: I'd write his papers if he took me to Cafe Rio. Worked out for both of us! Haha

But this last assignment was a little bit tougher: 6-page argument essay that's worth all of the other assignments combined. Wouldn't usually be a problem but I absolutely HATE argument essays. So annoying, and I really don't have too much of an opinion about "current issues." And if I do, it's definitely not strong enough to write a 6-page paper...

So after lots of putting it off, coaxing and bribes (I think Ben offered to take me to Cafe Rio 5 times if I would write it) we decided that we would write it together. Here's the quick version of how it went: we told ourselves we had all of Thanksgiving weekend to do it but didn't do any of it over the weekend. So Sunday after church we decided that we were going to do it first thing and get it done and then enjoy the rest of our Sunday... Next thing we know six o'clock rolls around and we still haven't started. Funny how when you need to get something done, you find all of these things to take up your time!! Haha anyway, we eventually started on it and got about 2 1/2 pages done and then just lost it. We just started messing around and playing with our papers and notes and such (I could explain some of the funny jokes and things we laughed at but I have a feeling it wouldn't be very funny if it's not 2 am) Haha so we went to bed knowing we wouldn't get anything else done. This morning Ben finished it - go Ben! I think he printed it out just in time to speed to school and get to class on time. We are professional procrastinators!!

Haha, this is much more exciting than a blog that said "Ben had a paper to write, and he did".

Glad you guys are the way you are.
