But the idea, Eric, was that I could prove that we had been married so long that I could divine her thoughts and intentions with minimal clues! Major win!

Or fail. Possibly major fail. In this particular and, I would like to point out, somewhat unique case. (Unique-ish, maybe. First and, so far, only dead lily stalk. At Christmas time.)

This is also, by the way, that she will precede her remarks about some cool item in a catalog or a store with, “WE DO NOT NEED THIS AND I DO NOT WANT ONE, but look at this…”

Husband & retiree. Developer, tech writer, & IT geek. I fill what’s empty, empty what’s full, and scratch where it itches. Occasionally do weird & goofy things.
