An Early Morning Conversation

Kate got up at 4:30 this morning to go to the bathroom. As I walked her back to bed, she started a conversation that lasted about fifteen minutes. Here’s an excerpt.

Kate:              “What’s the name of this place?”

Richard:        “This is our house.”

Kate:              “Really? It’s a nice place.”

I got back in bed.

Kate:              “What’s the name of this place?”

Richard:        “This is our house.”

Kate:              “It is?”

Richard:        “It really is.”

Kate laughs loudly when she realizes she hasn’t recognized her own house.

Richard:        “I love you.”

Kate:              “I love you, too. <pause> What’s your name?”

Richard:        “Richard.”

Kate:              “What’s my name?”

Richard:        “Kate, and we are a pair.”

Kate:              “We’re a good pair. Where are we?”

Richard:        “We’re in our house in Knoxville, Tennessee.”

Kate:              “I like it. We’re lucky.”

Richard:        “We’re very lucky.”

Kate:              “Where are we?”

I love our conversations. We are lucky.
