The Hubby called me at work yesterday. It was a really busy afternoon and I was a bit stressed out.
Me: [briskly] Hey, what’s up?
Hubby: I wanted to call to say hi, and to hear your voice.
Me: Awww…are you having a hard day?
Hubby: No. Actually I felt bad about last night.
Me: [puzzled]: Why, what happened last night?
Hubby: Well, I went to bed before you and I just realized today that I forgot to say good-night.
He says this in a completely straight tone and actually sounds apologetic. I’m stunned. I pull the phone away from my ear and look at it incredulously.
Me: [In a somehow not-mocking tone]: That’s what you feel bad about?
Hubby: Yeah. I should have given you a good night kiss, too.
Me: Ahhh…[stupid grin spreading slowly across my face], well…that’s…[stupid schoolgirl giggle].
Hubby: So, I’ll be home around 5:30 or six. Is it going to be another late night for you?
Me: [still sporting the stupid grin, making it difficult to speak]: We’ll see how it goes.
Hubby: Okay, see you sometime tonight then.
Me: Okay. See you then.
