HIM: Oh hi honey, how are you doing?
ME: Just like I was 5 minutes ago… I’m fine.
HIM: Are you sure you don’t want me to come visit you.
ME: Well the playoff’s are kinda on and…
HIM: So watching the playoff’s is more important to you than talking to me?
ME: (Thinking… yes… but of course that’s the wrong answer)… (Lying) Of course not. I’d rather talk to you than do anything else.
ME: Well ALMOST anything…
HIM: Oh you’re so romantic.
ME: (Thinking… I meant eating ribs or watching Michigan football, but we can go with that in the interest of keeping the peace… and a nice get well gift.)
