Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge!
I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
We are on the way home from an early dinner, and the kids are all smooshed in the back seat of the Prius.
It is so loud.
I can’t quite explain the sound. Is everyone talking at once? And singing?
In the past minute, above the racket, I think I’ve heard several requests.
“Can we go get my new bike?
“Can we go to the park to bike?”
“Can I get new shoes today?”
We pull into the garage and Mr. Thought and I just sit in the front seats as the kids tumble from the car and walk into the house.
We both take a deep breath, and he says, “Times have really changed since the Pontiac Proposal.”
21 years ago, we got engaged while driving home one evening.
“Remember before, when it was quiet?” He asks me. “When we wanted quiet –”
“We just stopped talking!” I finished his thought for him.
We stay there for another minute, and then walk into the house.
