“You never get it right, do you?” Amy scolded her husband. “This is the last time I’m going to leave planning the family vacation to you.”
“It’s not that bad,” Craig said.
“You’re not serious, right?” Amy said. “We’ve been stuck in this cabin for almost a week and have yet to see the sun. It has rained every goddam day. The kids are going stir crazy. And, frankly, so am I.”
“But it’s not raining now,” Craig said defensively. “Look out the window. The clouds are breaking up. I think the sun is coming out.”
Just as he said that, large raindrops started pelleting the cabin’s windows. “Right,” Amy said. “A little research, Craig, and you’d have known that you booked this cabin in the middle of the rainy season. No wonder you got such a good deal.”
“Look at the view, Amy,” Craig pleaded. “The mountains, the lake. It’s so serene. You have to admit that.”
Amy glanced out the window. “Is it? I can’t tell with all of the raindrops streaming down the window.”
“But if you look carefully you can see the rays of the sun coming down from between the clouds,” Craig pointed out.
Amy turned around to see that their two kids were up. She smiled at them and said, “How about I fix you some breakfast and then we can all play Yahtzee?”
“Again?” both kids groaned.
