The longer one’s been married, the more banter replaces lovey-dovey compliments:
Me (with my notorious hypothetical questions): Would you still love me if I were deaf and blind?
J: I would love you more if you were mute.
The lunar eclipse occurred earlier this morning – I know this because I’m a headline junkie, but by the time I left for work it was over. All that was left was a full moon over the ocean. But, J must have caught part of it since he’s up walking the dog at 5AM:
Me: The moon was HUGE this morning.
J (glued to his phone playing ‘Clash of Clans’): Really? I saw a crescent.
Me (in disbelief): Uhh dude…that was a lunar eclipse.
J: Really?!? You should have told me.
Me (snickering): You were looking at a lunar eclipse and didn’t even know it.
