Fathering 101: Multiple Conversations at Once
Setting: Costco Wholesale, Saturday afternoon.
Darling Bride: Did you get the eggs?
Darling Son: What's your favorite Wii game?
Me: Oops! Just passed them. Over this way.
Darling Bride: The coffeemate is up ahead, too.
Me: I like golf and bowling on Wii Sports Resort. I can get the coffeemate by reaching past the cereal...
Darling Bride: That's enough hamburger for two lasagnas. We're taking dinner to our friends Monday Night.
Darling Son: My favorite is Indiana Jones and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Me: Lasagna would be really good. Leftovers!
Darling Son: Do you want to be my Indiana Jones partner when we get back?
Darling Bride: Should we get the clippers?
Me: Look! Pepsi throwback with real sugar!
