From the Impressive Clergyman’s own mouth in The Princess Bride: “Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday. Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam….”

Case Study No. 1.

Stopping at the bank on the way to our city’s Harvest Festival.

Jamie: “I don’t know why they need my ID to get cash back. They’ve never asked for it before.”

Me: “Maybe it’s because of your ‘shady’ glasses.”

I didn’t even get a chuckle out of that one.

Case Study No. 2

It’s September, the time of cool temperatures, falling leaves and sweaters. Except Denver has forgotten that with persisting 90-degree temperatures (and allergies to add to my misery).

Me: “Last night, I dreamed it snowed one foot and we woke up in a winter wonderland. Don’t you think that’s a sign?”

Jamie: “It’s a sign that you need to suck it up a little bit longer.”
