This post was hugely popular last week because who doesn’t want to laugh more, REALLY.
OK, I have a doozy. I was doing my regular weekly interview with Mike E. and Carmela on Sydney’s Mix 106 breakfast show and we were discussing this post about couples like Helena Bonham Careter and Tim Burton who have seperate bedrooms or seperate houses.
We’d discussed the pros and cons of maintaining intimacy when you have seperate bedrooms and I’d mentioned how after you have kids, all bets are off because it becomes about musical beds with kids crawling into your bed or you falling asleep in theirs.
We’d chatted about insomnia and sleep-talking and how sometimes one person wants to watch TV and the other wants to read. Blah blah blah as Ke$ha would sing.
I thought my bit was pretty much done and they were just soliciting for calls so I started checking my emails and not paying attention. Suddenly, I heard the last few words of a question from Carmela, aimed at me. “….that must kill your sex life a bit, wouldn’t it, Mia?”
I made a snap assumption that the first part of the question had been: “Sleeping in seperate bedrooms…that must kill your sex life a bit, wouldn’t it, Mia?” and replied “Or maybe it would spice it up!”
Silence. Awkward silence. I don’t think I’d ever heard Mike E or Carmella lost for words before. Oh shit.
“Um, sorry guys, what did you just ask me?”
Turns out they’d asked “Having your kids in the bed…that must kill your sex life a bit, wouldn’t it Mia?”
And I’d answered that IT MIGHT SPICE IT UP.
Thank you God that this interview was pre-recorded. Because of course the correct answer to that question is: “Having kids in your bed is the best known form of contraception.”
