“Man, this is really working out my transitions,” Husband says with our thirty pound giant baby on his shoulders.
“My transitions. I’ve decided since I don’t know what my muscles are called, I’m going to use grammatical terms instead. Like, ‘my adverbs are sore today.'” He pats his tummy.
“Or your verbs are getting a little tense,” I add. “Get it? Tense?”
“I get it,” Husband says, rolling his eyes.
“I’m funny,” I remind him. I’m not sure he agrees.
Prepare to get silly.
