"Honey, We Need to Talk"

Fellow Traveler and I had just come home from dinner with her aunt and uncle and some household-necessaries shopping out of town. I was in the bathroom when I heard Fellow Traveler say, with feeling, "Honey -- we need to talk."

Omigod, I think. We need to talk? What did I do wrong? Did I say something? Did I do something? Did I not say or do something? Did I leave the peanut-butter knife in the kitchen sink without washing it off again? What? What?

Inwardly cringing, I slowly made my way down the hall to the next room and tentatively poked my head through the doorway.

Fellow Traveler was talking to Cassie, the dog.

I think my therapist will enjoy this story.

Your reaction: very human and much like mine would have been.
Fellow Traveler's using that line with the dog: priceless!

I really like your blog. I plan to read it on a regular basis. Thanks for the tip to the Reconciling Christians.

We were in Yellowstone this summer and my wife was driving. She pulled alongside the river and I heard her say, "Let's just stop and talk for a while." I had exactly the same reaction as you; until it became clear she had actually said: " Let's just stop and gawk for a while."
