Donna looked over at her husband. “Saint Patrick’s Day?”

“Well, yes, tomorrow is Saint Patrick’s Day,” Sol said. “But that’s not what I’m talking about.”

“What are you talking about, then?”

“Wednesday is the Vernal Equinox,” Sol said. “You know what that means, right?”

“Yes, it’s one of the two times each year that we have sex,” Donna said. “Once at the Vernon Equinox and once at the Autumnal Equinox. Woo hoo!”

(Exactly 83 words)
