OH: “I get to do science in the bathroom today!”

I’m not entirely certain that I really want more details, but as the teacher, I suppose I should investigate.

(It turns out she was doing an experiment with light, and needed a room with no windows that she could make completely dark.  In our house, that’s the only room that works.)

Don’t pay the ransom!

When I’m late coming home (as I was yesterday), I often call Shannon from the car and tell her “Don’t pay the ransom! They let me go!”. Getting things wrapped up at the office before leaving for a week, I just called her to let her know I was still at work. Recognizing the situation by the phone number, she (instead of saying “Hello?”) immediately proclaimed, “I don’t have any money! You’ll have to escape!!”.

I love my wife.
