I credit this observation to one of my grown nieces. “As far as I can tell, marriage means yelling ‘what?’ from another room.”
I once ordered an item for my wife’s birthday from a company in my state. The promised two-day delivery took more than two weeks. Using the tracking app I watched the package go from my state to another state as far as you can get and still be in the lower 48 states. It then meandered back to my state and then my home… one day after my wife’s birthday.
We haven’t made a lot of progress
Growing up with seven siblings we only saw leftovers after Thanksgiving dinner. That lasted until Thanksgiving night.
Given the resemblance that goes beyond siblings, it’s like Bernice’s brother is almost her imaginary creation.
As a Patriots fan I have to admit that Brady is still great but he also had a great defense to keep the score so one sided. Mahomes, if he can avoid serious injuries, will be a hall of famer too.
Look at American history. We always rebound from crisis, natural or man made, better than ever. Wars, depressions, civil strife. Sometimes we learn right away, sometimes it takes a couple of times to get it right. But we rebound.
Once, in the last century, I was home from college and sound asleep in bed when I was awakened by a shriek from the kitchen. I ran into the kitchen to see my two sisters and our brave german shepherd standing on chairs. Because one sister had seen the mouse. I have no idea why the dog was on a chair. I caught the mouse the next day and released it into nearby woods. I advised the mouse, that if he came back, do so when the lights are out.
Of course I still look, peek, stare, ogle…. After 37 years of marriage she’s as gorgeous and fit as ever.
