Conversation between 18 & I at 9:45 this morning when I called home on break from work:
Me: Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
18: Give me the bad news
Me: The bad news is that I have to do 5 hours of overtime between 10 am & 3pm every Thursday for the next 5 weeks.
18: Oh- that sucks for you but since the kids go back to school next Thursday it doesn’t make much of any difference for me- what’s the good news
Me: I’m damned if I’m going to do any more overtime than that- so I’ll be leaving work at 4:30 every day now & so will be home around 5:30
18: No really- what’s the good news?
Yes dear I love you too….
