That is so sweet, Rocket! (Both the acknowledgement and the piece itself.)

I should mention, though, that it’s not like I invented the spousal conversation schtick. Certainly I’d have to look back to George Burns and Gracie Allen (recordings, thank you, not live) as some of the early inspirations. Even here on Medium, JB and Abbie and Karen DeBonis have done great conversational bits with their hubbies. And I take this opportunity to point to ACWMH (Actual Conversations with My Husband) as one who does the same thing I do, but funnier (she keeps the best stuff on her own blog):
