Did you see that?


She suddenly blurted out, "Did you see that out there?"

He looked up from reading his paper and stared quizzically at her noticing she was still looking out the window.

"Oh you'd never believe, it was amazing" she went on "but now it has gone you missed it".

"But I haven't missed anything because you never told me what it was or that I should come and see, so please finish your sentences" he grumbled.

"I just wanted you to see it, that's all", she said pouting.

"Yes dear", he said burying his head in the paper again wishing he'd read the fine print on the marriage contract if only he had one!

  1. The old grump. Yes, the marriage contract comes without a manual for a happy marriage. He could have put the paper down.

  3. Unfinished sentences and disappearing wonders--some things seem universal!

  4. Well done! Many conversations leave me wondering where the manual is, both marriage and parenting!
