Sketches – 64

Home late

Hi, there

Well, hello, love.
How was your shower?

Great.
The new hot water heater
Actually heats water, so…
How was work?

Long. The new position
Is starting off busy

Busy is good, though, right?

Yeah, at work.
How did it go at the gallery today?

S l l o o o o w w w …

Ugh. My day sounds like it was better

What did you end up having for dinner?

Two Coke Zeroes and a Nutri-Grain bar.
I’ll grab an apple before I take my shower.
What about you?

I scrambled eggs.

I’m sorry I missed that.

And now I have a few hours of watching nothing but FLUFF planned.
Hallmark channel.

Do you want to go see “Tolkien” this weekend?

What’s that?

You haven’t seen the ads?
Sorry, dumb question.
I think it’s about how he met his wife
And how it shaped his writing

Sure, sounds good.
How long has it been since we’ve been to a movie?

Too long

Do you want to go over to the Peachtree?
They have that deal where we get
Two large drinks, forty-three boxes of candy, a semi full of popcorn,
And an angioplasty, I think

Worth the extra five mile drive, that is.
It’s a date.

Before you take your shower, though,
I have a question…

Which is?

Have you ever felt how soft this towel is?

Not recently

You might want to try it.
Just make sure it hasn’t changed

Sounds like good advice
For many situations
