Calah has said to me over the past few days that she really wants to go to the beach on Sunday. Now, Sunday is her birthday, and recently plans that we’d had with friends for that day were postponed. I showed little interest in the beach and hoped she’d drop it. She didn’t drop it. I realized I had no choice but to express my frustration. I asked her why she had to be such a nudnik. And in response to her protests that it will be a nice day to go to the beach, I said that I had gotten new brake pads for the bike because I had wanted to surprise her early Sunday morning with a bicycle ride at the beach. She’s happy we’ll get to go. So am I.
Yesterday I missed COCOON, COCOONED, CONCEDE, CONCEDED, CONDO, CONVEY, DECO, NEOCON, NONCE, and ONCE.
