Example of why I have learned to mostly quit while I’m ahead

Me to Wonder Woman after running outside and catching her before she backs out of the driveway so that I can hand to her the cellphone she left on the kitchen counter—the one that I can never reach her on:

“Please keep this on you.”

“I do.”

“Apparently not.”

“Yes, I do. That’s why it was inside.”


“I said I do keep it on me; that’s why it was inside.”

“Wait: ‘Please keep your cellphone on you,’ ‘I do; that’s why it
wasn’t on me’ …?”

“Yep.” [pleasant smile]

“… wha …?”

“I kept it on me when I came inside earlier instead of leaving it in the car. That’s why it was in the kitchen.”

Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you: how can you argue with that logic? And, speaking as someone who has been married to her for 10 wonderful years, allow me to answer for you: you can’t.
