The following conversation occurred on Thursday morning at 8:20. The names of the innocent, dry-humoured/smug and sleepy have been changed to protect their identities.
Well-meaning Husband: Hey Hon, how was your morning?
Tired Wife: Pretty good. There was lots of news to cover this morning. It was pretty busy.
(Loving hug and kiss exchanged)
Well-meaning Husband: Oh, there was Canadian news? I turned on CBC this morning and all they were covering was that New York guy and the prostitute ring.
Tired Wife: Oh there was lots of coverage on that, but there were also clips on all the confidence votes coming up.
Well-meaning/smug Husband: Did they report on the new fashion trends in Ottawa?
Tired Wife: Ummm...no.... (raise eyebrow here to signal confusion over why hubby would be interested in fashion clips from the news)
Well-meaning/smug Husband: I figured that is where you heard that inside out sweaters are all the rage in Ottawa this season.
Tired Wife: (looking down at her sweater) Ah SHIT...
I guess that happens when you get up at 3AM and dress half in the dark and half asleep.
1) Note to self: Double check clothes before leaving each morning.
2) Note to self: Find out if Janet Jackson is available to play me in my life movie...since she has experience in wardrobe malfunctions and all.
