Oh, and this… Breaking Clean, by Judy Blunt

“John,” Mike once asked, “how often do you tell your wife that you love her?”

“Oh, I’ve told her that before,” he replied cautiously. I cut into the conversation from my corner of the ring.

“You only told me you loved me once, and that was the day we were married,” I said.

“Well,” John said, injured and defensive, “I never took it back, did I?”

Okay, I think that’s enough for now.

    With any luck, Julia, this means we have had our dose of “cold and flu season” and are through with this nonsense for the rest of the year. *cough* *sniffle* *snort*

  3. Hope so, Jaye! Feel better.

  4. You’re welcome, Amber. Important subject.
