The Wife says, "I don't know why I can't go to sleep, I have to work tomorrow."
I respond "I know why. You are just so glad to be married to me."
Wife emits roar of laughter, wave upon wave.
Meanwhile I have a veRy valid reason for not sleeping, an eXtreme headache wanna-be, which I am treating, no fighting, with a combo-nation of coffee, ibuprofen, peanut butter sandwich and it seems there was something else.
Coffee is finaLLy ready.
Thw Wife teLLs me another story after she foLLows me into the living room where the cerebral battle continues, Pain V Coffee.
She says, (and I eXplain)
"So I hear the TV
(get loud because it was silent)
and there is a pain in my back and I start looking for the remote
and then I realize
that I am laying on the remote
(and she fails to mention or notice that her back had turned up the volume.)"
One of the ways that you can teLL that is her authentic conversation is that it has the word "TV" instead of "teleBision".
We now have our own iPads, it is a truly marvelous situation. The Wifey wanted my old one so I was "forced" to buy a new one. With cameras! Skype seems to work a little better, perhaps it is the faster processors, dunno. I don't think I have ever wrote the word dunno before. When I wanted to take a picture of my grape vine leaf yesterday, to show that it was larger than the palm of my hand, I had to hold the iPad with one hand, put the other hand under the grape leaf (still on the vine) and then push the camera shutter button with my nose.
While proofreading this I noticed the word "the" is speLLed "thw" in the sixth paragraph, but I decided to not fix it, because I had already fixed it once before as the very first word in the first paragraph.
Cool: I just realized that "dunno" is a contraction of three words, with an implied fourth word, "[I] do not know".
Absent For A Bit ....
Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.
