One summer day a few years ago we were over at some friends' house, sitting on their back deck chatting about the heat, when their 7 year old daughter came out. Apparently, she had been inside getting vocabulary lessons from her teenage sisters, because she couldn't wait to come outside and announce;
"I"m hot... in TWO ways!"
and then turn around and walk back in while we tried unsuccessfully to control our fits of laughter.
The brain and I have kept it as an inside joke.
See, some people think that maybe, I might possibly tend to get somewhat irritable when I get over heated.
So when The Brain tells me that I'm hot... in TWO ways... well, it's not just a compliment, it's also a commentary on the fact that possibly, it might be time to go stick my feet in some ice water.
And it's funny every time.
Seriously, how many men do you know that can tell their wives they are sexy and cranky in the same sentence and get away with it?
I am one lucky wife.
