A package arrived for SH the other day while he was in Dallas. I emailed him to tell him it had arrived.
Me: Hi baby. You got a package from buy.com.
SH: The buy.com package is a hammer, of all things. It has some kind of fancy vibration-reducing technology, and it was just a bit over $10. Open it if you want to.
Me [trying to think of how to phrase my response given that SH has hammered exactly five times since we met): Ummm. You know I already have a hammer, right?
Our conversation when he got home:
Me: You know I already have a hammer.
SH: But this one is cool! And someday, we might be doing a lot of hammering.
