“So where are you going tonight?” WonderWife™ asked me as I shed my work attire and donned my customary jeans and t-shirt.
“To Don’s house,” I said.
“That’s unusual. What are you guys doing?”
“I don’t want to tell you.”
“There’s no way you're leaving the house without telling me what you’re up to,” she said with a smile.
I covered my mouth with my hand and mumbled, “Mgoingtoplayvidgames.”
I took a deep breath. This was inevitable. “I’m going over to play XBox. A group of guys are getting on line to play. It’s Halo Tuesday.”
She gave me her signature “you’re such a geek” reaction, which is to roll her eyes, sigh ever so slightly and internally question how she could have possibly ended up with a guy like me.
“Have fun being you,” she said to me as I kissed her and headed out the door.
