Who lights you up?

TheKaOfKatie for the blog“She doesn’t look at me the same way she looks at them.”

That’s Dennis Miller, talking about his wife and kids. “At some point you realize,” he continues, “you’re just a date that worked out.”

Darrell can relate.

He and Katie and I borrowed a truck recently. After we finished using it Katie wanted to drive it on the return trip. Well, sure. She needed to back up before she pulled into traffic. Darrell didn’t want her to back up too far, so he got out of the truck to guide her.

At which point, and I mean immediately, Katie and I forgot the plan. We resumed our conversation, and to say we were immersed in that is a little bit of an understatement. You would’ve sworn we were best friends who hadn’t seen each other in years and had exactly five minutes to catch up on everything -- that’s how animated we were. We forgot we were in a truck, we forgot about Dad, we forgot about everything except how much our stomachs hurt from laughing.

All of a sudden, the knock. Darrell opened the passenger door and said, “What the (yep, that word)?”

It was disorienting, seeing him. We’d forgotten he existed!

He was a good sport about it. He told Katie he thought she was waiting for a text.

How do you rate?
