Just Peachy, Daniel
I do have one good story to share.
One morning this week I had a Very Important Visitor (we'll call her Marsha) and a colleague (and he could be Daniel) waiting in my office to meet with the head of the school. He was delayed a bit, so I offered the guests some coffee from the newly acquired Keurig machine (don't get me started). The Very Important Visitor thanked me and declined, saying, "Oh, I have the best husband in the world! He makes the coffee every morning. And brings me a cup!" Not to be outdone, I piped up, "Well, my husband cuts up fresh fruit every morning for breakfast, carefully selected not only for flavor but for how the combination will look in the bowl!" Marsha nodded appreciatively. Daniel looked as though he was going to try to crawl under his chair.
"Don't worry," I told him. "If you are nice to us, we won't tell your wife."
