First of all, you need to realize my husband is NOT a morning person. That's why he loves working second shift, 3:30 to midnight. Next thing you need to know is that I AM a morning person. I'm awake before 4 A.M., and happy about it.
When I work, I leave shortly after 5 A.M. I like to touch bases with Cliff, so I wake him and chatter about whatever is on my mind. He mostly just grunts, and often doesn't even remember our "conversations".
This morning I told him about the Old Thresher's literature we received in yesterday's mail. I love that annual Labor Day gathering in Iowa, and we've gone a few times. There's an added incentive to go, this year: Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley will be singing TOGETHER on Thursday night, and we both enjoy them. This is what I woke Cliff to tell him. And what did I hear from him?
"I don't know how you plan to find the money for all the stuff you think we're going to do this year, with you only working two days a week!"
But I remembered, Cliff is not to be held accountable for anything he says at 5 AM.
Sure enough, when I got home he'd left a message on the answering machine telling me he didn't know WHERE that came from, and that we'd do anything I wanted to do this year if we had to BORROW the money.
I love my husband. (And we won't be borrowing any money; I'm secreting a few bucks away each week for just such purposes.)
