Actual conversation from last night, at the kitchen table. The Girl is writing out her Valentine’s Day cards, and The Boy is working on a report on Thomas Edison.

The Wife: TB, do you have to do valentines?

TB: Well, we don’t have to, but we can. If we do, we have to do one for everyone in the class.

TW: Do you want to?

TB: (shrugging): I guess so.

TW: Is there anyone outside of your class you’d like to give one to?


TB (smirking): I choose not to disclose that information.
