Ten Days

I turned to one of my friends and said to him excitedly, "So, ten days, huh?"

"Yes," he said, and began to describe to me the painful process of dealing with short sales, real estate agents, wrong e-mail addresses, and being able to finally iron out the new house details ten days from now.

I should have been more specific.

I should have said, "So, your wife is due in ten days, huh?"

(Although, real estate dates are probably slightly more reliable than due dates.)

Yes! I love the whole, "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" feel to his response, but it makes sense. SHE is worried about the birthing of the baby, HE is worried about providing a roof over their heads. It's both funny AND beautiful!
