While preparing dinner, Rick looked at me with the most disturbing look on his face that I've ever seen.
"We have a problem. A big problem."
I feared the worst. Because, after all, our taxes are not done yet. My car is not paid for, our dog is getting old and my daughter won't make a decision on which college to go to.
There's no food in our fridge, my house is dirty and I'm afraid of wind. Oh wait, I got off track.
There are a lot of things to fear in my life, though. Right now it's money or a lack there of. So, I feared that Rick's news was somehow tied to a lack of funds. Or the lawsuit that we are currently embroiled in.
"Okay... what's up?"
"You're going to have to make a decision."
"Okay... keep going..."
"Dancing With The Stars is on up against American Idol tonight' "
"Are you kidding me? THAT'S our dilemna?"
"Yeah. You can watch one and record the other or you can record one and watch the other. Now what's it gonna be?"
"Good thing our DVR records two shows at once, Rick.... And it's a good thing I'll be home to watch one. And it's a DARN GOOD THING I have nowhere to go tonight. 'Cuz I wouldn't want the world to end!"
I mean, Kate Gosselyn's future hangs in the balance, for heaven's sake.
