Scenes From a Marriage

Last night, lying in bed, the light was hitting Mr. Pink's face just right.

"What are you looking at?" he asked.
"Your eyelashes are really long," I said.
"Yes, they are sumptuous," he said, and then he fluttered them so I could appreciate their luxurious length. Yes, he said "sumptuous."

So. Even when we're fighting about whether or not he's going to take that job in Seattle, a place to which I have no desire to move, since I don't like coffee and I don't like rain, he can still make me laugh.
