(((Wife))) Amazes Me. Again.21 April, 2009
(((Wife))) amazes me. Often. I was looking for a particular book. I looked in our glass-front barrister bookcase where my first editions reside. Nothing. I looked on the short bookcase and found one of his books, but not the right one. So I went upstairs, looked in both bookcases and in the overflow closet. Found three more of his books, but still not the right one. So I finally got smart andI asked (((Wife))), “Where is the book I’m looking for? It’s a Herblock book, and I think it is Herblock’s Here and Now.”
“It’s in the barrister bookcase.”
“I looked there.”
So she walks out, opens the door, pulls the book out (from a spot where I had already looked!), and says, “Here it is. That’ll be $12.oo labour, plus parts.”
How the hell does she do that?
I’m working on a post (which I should be working on now (not writing this)) which should be up this evening. If I can find the passage from the book.
If I can’t find it, I’ll just ask (((Wife))).
