Last week Annie (names have been changed to protect the innocent) is talking with the missus, bored and looking for fun. The missus knew that we were gonna slide down the hill to the Chapter House for beers and asked her along, how much more fun could you ask for? Annie looked like she has stepped on a slug, and said "what would I want to do that for?". Sure, the Chapter House is dirty and ratty, but the popcorn is FREE.
Tom, his real name actually, is exactly my age and also a potter and instructor in the pot shop, and also like me, a house husband. Except he has 3 kids. Yesterday we were working on pots in the pot shop and gossiping with our friends and I am like "Tom, Chapter House for happy hour, the popcorn is free? And Kosher" (although none of us is Jewish, it is reassuring that the stuff is Kosher).
Tom who has been changing diapers and helping with homework for 16 plus years is like "YEAH, this is the NEW Mister Mom, let's go", and his wife got the kids for a change.
