It was 6:15 PM Friday night. “Honey, are you ready to go?” Kay yelled downstairs to her husband, Daryl.
“Go where, baby?” was his puzzled response.
“What do ya mean, ‘where?’ …to my parents house. Don’t you remember?”
“Umm,” Daryl hesitated. “…nooo! I knew you wanted to go visit them, but I didn’t know it was tonight.”
Kay grumbled, “Honey, I told you a few days ago. And you said ‘ok’”.
“What? When was this?” Daryl defended himself.
“Last Sunday. When you were watching the football game.” Then Kay thought about that. “Ohhhh, no wonder you don’t remember. You must have just answered ‘ok’ to everything I asked,” Kay reacted, having a lightbulb moment.
The next day, Kay asked Daryl, “What time do you want to catch that movie this afternoon, honey?”
“Baaaby, not today. I’m watching basketball today. Some important games.”
“But you promised,” Kay moped. “You said we could go on Saturday.”
“What? I don’t remember saying anything about Saturday. I said sometime soon,” replied her distracted husband.
Kay started to cry, “You used to say I was more important than anything else in the world. Now you’d rather watch any Sports program in the world instead of spending time with me. What do you love more, Daryl? Football, basketball, baseball, hockey, or me?”
“What’s that baby?” Daryl asked as he turned up the TV.
