Scenes from a Marriage

Time: Tonight, March 14th, around 9:00

Setting: The Husband's Home Office

Characters: 1. The Husband, packing for an upcoming ski trip that I am not going on as A) I do not ski, and B) Small Son.

2.The Rachel: Tired, silly, and with one (or two) vodka tonics in the system.

The Rachel: (Sitting in The Husband's chair, kicking a plastic Wal-Mart bag repeatedly in the air and giggling.) "Look! It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!"

The Husband: (Sighs) Did you just make an American Beauty joke? In 2008?"

The Rachel: (Still giggling) "IT'S THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING I'VE EVER SEEN!"

The Husband: ...

Trust me any unmarried folk out there. Exchanges like this? They are what it's all about.

LOL! Don't get me started on some of the conversations I've had with my hubby. You'd think we were twelve. :)

Anyway, I've given you props on my blog again. :) Check it out if you want.

Silly little exchange? I think not! At my house (2 semi-grown adults and 1 all-out wild todler) we call this communication! At least it doesn't involve your son's bodily...never mind!

I love those moments in life when something so simple is the funniest thing in the world at the time.

One of my all time most used phrases is... "I guess you had to be there."
