Meditations on Marriage in 2015

This conversation just happened:

Scene: Suburban bedroom. Husband and wife coordinating complicated afternoon carpool for their children.

Cast: Brian is in the role of husband, and I will be the wife.

Brian: Melanie, I don’t know what kind of help I am going to be for you today with carpool.
Me: OK, are you asking, what I want you to do, or are you telling me you can’t help?
Brian: My meeting is at 5:00. So, I am leaving at 4:00.
Me: Then you are of no use to me, and really, I am fine with that.
Brian: (Smiling) As long as we are on the same page.

Seriously, y’all, I can’t make this stuff up.
