The difference between someone who has moved about five times in his life and someone who has moved a gajillion times

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)

SH: Yes.

Me: Should I get rid of mine?

SH: Why?

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.
