Stream of Consciousness Saturday — Whether the Weather


“What’s tomorrow’s weather outlook?” she asked as we were getting ready for bed.

I checked the weather app on my smartphone. “Mostly sunny with a high of 65,” I said. “Why?”

“I’m trying to decide whether we should take a day trip up the coast with the kids or just stick around the house and have a backyard cookout in the afternoon,” she responded. “What do you think?”

“I think the weather will work either way, whether you want to take that drive or hang out at home.”

“Let’s do the cookout,” she said after tossing the two option around in her head for a few minutes. Then she gave me a rather wry look and said, “Now we need to decide whether or not to invite your folks over.”

“Um, on second thought,” I said, “maybe we should take that ride up the coast with the kids.”

Well, I thought, whether she knows it or not, my wife definitely has got my number!
