|It all went south after the soaking.|
"See you at 6:30," I say, as I exit gracefully into the garage.
"Have fun. Don't overdo it," he says, lovingly.
For some reason, hubby thinks I'm going to over-dance myself into a frenzy of pulled muscles. Why does he think that? Just because I sometimes return with a noticeable limp? In any event, off I go to dance my cares away, while he ruminates over dinner. Last night, I return to the smoky scent of grilled salmon and the curious case of the Basmati Debacle.
"I eff'd up with the Basmati," hubby tells me.
I peer into the pot and find a big mush pile of rice.
"What happened here, my love?"
"I don't know. I followed the instructions."
"Yes. I soaked the rice, I did everything right."
"I'm sure you did."
Enter the almost-done-with-college son, enjoying his last few weeks of freedom. "I'm not eating that."
"I followed the instructions," hubby says.
"Maybe the rice is defective," I say. "But let's never speak of this again."
"Unless you blog about it."
"Well, there's always that possibility."

|"Grandma, get down from there!"|
"John's parents are away on vacation. His father calls up to ask how things are going. John says, 'The cat is dead.' His father gets very upset, and says, 'Son, you could have put that a bit more subtly. For example, you could have said that the cat climbed onto the roof. He slipped and fell. And oh, no, he hit the ground and died.' Anyway, how's grandma?' John says, 'Grandma's on the roof...'"
"I love that joke."
"Oh. You've heard it before?"
"It's a classic."
"You could've stopped me."
"Are you kidding? This is the first time you've told me a joke in 23 years."
"I don't usually tell jokes."
"I know. Are you trying to tell me something, Dr. Pollen?"
"Bad news, God forbid."
"No, I was just trying to tell you the joke."
"You did a great job."
