At Home

Josh The Pilot is gone a lot, and when he is gone, I miss him. Now he's home for an extended time, which is wonderful. Shelves go up. Grass gets mowed. I have someone to say "It's thundering," to when it thunders. This is why I married.

But as most of you know, Josh The Pilot and I are in a mixed marriage. I avoid watching videos on Facebook, and he loooooooves them. He rolls right through his timeline and into Top Videos For You, followed by what's recommended by his watching habits based on his activity on Top Videos For You. Today I sat down to plow through some work emails, and in the first four minutes overheard the following: 

-a man talking to a goat

-airplanes making airplane noises

-someone playing the theramin

We will prove the naysayers wrong, however. He usually doesn't say a thing when he sees me drinking flavored sparkling water, which offends his very being.
