Unbreakable Unity : A Documentary Means  Quality Time Between Shawn and Nicole       

Shawn Dozes Off with Nicole and Prepares To Travel

by: Nicole Kim Phillips

About halfway into the Bobi Wine Documentary, I nestled near Shawn's armpit and rested my head there.  I woke up with my head in his lap and he had covered me with one of my favorite quilts.  I felt loved and comforted.  It did not take long for me to realize, the TV was watching both of us.  Shawn was snoring.  I sat up, and Shawn opened his eyes.  Out of habit or just a natural reflex, he started feeling for his hat.  Shawn appeared to be just as clueless as I was, and looked at me with a question mark on his face. I assumed he was thinking, how did we get here?  Though neither of us said those words, it was kind of funny.  Shawn spoke first.  I thought we was suppose to be watching the documentary?  Did you see it all?  No, it must have been the drinks.  The last scene I remember was seeing a military man enter through the door.  Babe, maybe I really needed a nap after all, I said feeling rested and hoping I would not be up all night.  Last I knew, we were almost an hour into it.  No worries, we can finish watching it before I leave.
