Last week, Captain Thoughtful was out of town and I missed him very much. And also, I realized how differently I hear things when he’s home with me. When he’s home, a loud noise in the night causes me to curse the neighbors children who apparently wear bowling balls for shoes. When he’s not home, a loud noise in the night causes me to grab a baseball bat and have 911 pre-dialed on my phone.
I think that’s called perspective, but I prefer to think of it as CaptainThoughtfulcannevergooutoftownwithoutmeagain.
