The scene: I am packing books in preparation for the move. We will rent a truck, load it, drive it to Milwaukee, and put my stuff in storage until we find a house. It is in our interests to reduce the amount of stuff to be moved as much as possible.
Important fact: Serious Honey and I went to the same university and graduated the same year. (We met at our 20-year-reunion.)
Me: Do you have copies of the Campanile? (the Rice yearbook)
Me: Should I get rid of mine?
Me: Because they’re heavy and take up room and there is no reason for us to have two copies of the same books.
SH: But it’s not that much trouble to move them! And we’ll have room.
