Picture it - the copy room - 9:30 am
Co-worker: Saw your husband last night. He had on a great looking tie.
Mrs. News Readin': Oh, you did? Where?
Co-worker: On the news. (Awkward pause) You did know that's where he was last night.
Mrs. News Readin': Of course - the news. Right. Thanks for watching. (nervous laugh)
Just some notes on that little performance:
- She thought she was letting the cat out of the bag...like he's been moonlighting and I had no idea. Oy.
- Now she thinks we have some weird open marriage, live separate lives and only attend high profile events together.
- Wait. We don't go to high profile events.
- WTF. Why would I thank her for watching?! Sometimes I'm so awkward. Ugh.
And for the record, yes I did know where he was last night. I watched the 6:00 pm newscast.I just always forget that other people can see him in the magic box, too.
But not a clue as to what tie he was wearing...damn. I need to be a better News Readin' Wife.
