An interesting light hearted story about marital bargaining and a new updated great room.
Yesterday morning I was lying abed reading the book for my upcoming science fiction bookclub. This book had become a pageturner: terrorists were heading toward Houston with a dirty bomb, a hostile AI was loose in cyberspace, and a nuke was minutes away from Washington DC. How could I put the book down, but Hubby recited a recent quote of the deceased basketball coach, Al McQuire: "If you want to succeed, get out of bed!" So I did and we went shopping for Persian rugs. The first store we came to was Shabahang's in Milwaukee. And low and behold the first rug that we looked at seemed to have the colors that were in
The interesting thing is that I was against the leather and so won the agreement to get the Persian rug. But when the leather sectional arrived, I just loved it. The leather was so soft, and yet the frame and the firmness of the new sofa --well I just loved it. So Amos had made the bargain and it would not have been necessary. That gave him remorse as well. Ah, well, the dealings of a married couple. But, I did "get out of bed and succeed yesterday." I got a new great room.
