The Problem with Being Married to Another Writer…


…is that sometimes, things can get a little too meta in our house. Take this morning, for example:

Me (having just finished a long writing session, lying flopped on the bed and having a hard time motivating myself to move): “Patrick, tell me to stand up!”

Patrick (working on a whiteboard nearby): “Why?”

Me: “I need to take a shower.”

Patrick (still studying the in-progress outline for his new book on the whiteboard): “Hmm, I’m not sure the stakes are really high enough if all you need to do is get clean. Will showering actually save your whole city from destruction?”

Me: “Er…I’m not sure my showers are quite THAT effective.” ;)

(I showered anyway.)
