Hey honey? Oh, say can you see if the temperature’s dropped any before we leave for the fireworks? 113 degrees? Yikes. I better not go. You know I’m in menopause, right? You know I have hot flashes, right?
What do you mean I have to go?!?!?!
Okay. Honey? Oh, say can you see if you have some extra ice to pack into that jumbo cooler? I have a feeling I might need it.
You’re still making me go with you?!?!?!
Oh, say can you see if you have the emergency number for our marriage counselor in your wallet. If you’re really making me go with you, I have a feeling you’re gonna need it.
