I hope everyone is keeping warm. It’s… not very pretty hereabouts. On the other hand, it’s the perfect weather to hole up indoors and commune with a story or two.
And make wedding plans.
We’re coming up on our 25th anniversary and we’re going back to Gretna Green and put our hands back on the anvil. Just to make sure the next 25 years work out just as well. Given that, it’s little wonder that I seem to be stuck on one particular Jack & Gareth conversation. We’re still at the point where Gareth works like crazy and Jack makes all the running at home. Something that bothers him not at all, but seems to have everyone around him – including Gareth – a bit on edge.
From Swings & Roundabouts
“Jack, I… what brought this on?”
“Listening to everyone tonight…apparently it creeps up on you. You think everything’s fine and then one morning you wake up to divorce papers or something.”
“That’s a little dramatic, isn’t it?”
“How would I know? I’ve never done this before.”
“That’s not us, Jack.”
“No, I know. I’m just… paying attention.”
I promise that next week’s snip – the end of that particular discussion – will be a lot more hopeful!
