For your reading pleasure, a recent exchange at home, as I attempted to coordinate the next few days. I'm wondering if this is me (us), or if something similar plays out across the nation each and every week, with only the details changing from house to house and couple to couple. Do Barack and Michelle do this? Do Joe and Jill? Did they used to?
The people may reverse roles - this isn't a female / male thing - but I wonder.
Who is the person who keeps track of stuff and who is the person who gets updated on the details of the stuff in your house?
Sunday (as we're talking about the coming week):
Me: You know I have that Board meeting Tuesday night, right?
Him: The what?
Me: The board meeting, in Easton....
Him: What time?
Him: How long is it?
Me: I don't know - maybe a few hours.
Him: How many people will be there?
Me: I don't know.
You remember about that meeting Tuesday, right?
The board meeting I told you about.
Oh yeah - what time is that?
5:30 (...and we're off and running on a second round of the above)
So I won't be home for dinner tonight.
