A thought occurs to me.
"I'm going kayaking in a couple of weeks," I say to the spouse.
"Yes," he replies, gravely, "you are."
I chew reflectively on the end of my thumb.
"I probably need a bathing suit for kayaking," I muse, thinking that kayaking somewhere near the North Pole no doubt requires something a little warmer than a bathing suit. Like maybe a deep sea diving suit.
"Yes, that would be a good idea," he says, patiently.
"I don't have a bathing suit."
He sighs. "You live in Southern California. I think you can probably buy a bathing suit in the next couple of days."
I think I'd rather try on bras.
Go listen to some good music: "Life in Technicolor" from the album Viva la Vida by Coldplay.
