Me, 11:20 p.m. on Good Friday: I could use a drink, but the fast is on.

The Wife: You could wait 40 minutes.

Me: But I’m pretty tired.

The Wife: Me too.

Me: I’ll just wait and have a drink when I get up, then.

The Wife: Sounds good.

    When you get older, you always know exactly what to do. Because you're too old to do anything else.

  2. Matthew,

    The next time you find yourself in this predicament, call me – I'll be up.

    It being two hours later in Wisconsin, I will already be in a state of high hilarity and will occupy you with amusements for 40 minutes.

    I'm sure I can keep you awake for 40 minutes-worth of trivialities…
