Conversation With My Husband This Morning
Me: “On my way to Dallas Wednesday , I thought I would go by Round Top.”
Husband, looking at me in disbelief : “But if you do that, you will be heading east.”
Me, thinking it is not the pioneer days, and I am not pulling a covered wagon through the mountains before snowfall, but on second thought, I bet if I found a hutch in Round Top it would fit nicely in a covered wagon… and what is so wrong with ‘heading east’?, but instead I said:
“Well if I leave at 4:30 am, I can get to Round Top by 10:30 am, and then I can explore until 4:00 pm, and then I can get to Dallas before dark.”
(this is another pioneer rule we use- you can drive around in circles all day if you want to, but you need to get where you are going before dark)
Husband, looks at me like I am crazy.
Several Hours Later During a Football Game on Television
Me: “Is a U-Haul trailer expensive?”
(I know what it costs because I have rented one before, but I LOVE seeing his reaction. It is soooo much fun.)
Husband: Pretends he is taking a nap during the commercial.
