This Morning

I looked at my watch. It was 5:29. I felt rested and decided to get up. Kate and I were lying very close together. She said, “Who are you?” I said, “It’s me.”

Kate:             “Are you a boy or a girl?”

Richard:        “A boy.” Kate (very calmly): “Well, I don’t think we should be in the same bed together.”

Richard:        “I was just about to get up.”

Kate:             “What are you going to do?”

Richard:        “I was going to get dressed and then have breakfast.”

Kate:             “That sounds good.”

Richard:        “It’s still early. You might want to sleep a little longer.”

Kate:             “Okay.”

Richard:        “I love you.”

Kate:            (chuckles).
