Twenty-five roller-coaster years, how do we celebrate that, honey?”
“I dunno babe, maybe a trip, do we have any tokens?”
“Let me check. Wouldn’t you think we’d be above coupon clipping after all this time?” Jenny spoke as she rifled through the coupon drawer.
“Hey, don’t start with me! You know why I never took the promotions, I didn’t plan on any of the stuff that’s happened,” Phil countered becoming more defensive with each word.
“Honey, cool it, it was just a throw-away. I didn’t mean to hurt you. You’re right, and Philip Solomon, I would not change one thing about our life. Imagine if we wrote it down sometime?”
“Aha, that would be like ‘War and Peace’, there are our two families for starters, then the kids. Nothing prepared us for having children with disabilities. We could write a book for each child and a three-volume treatise on your mother!”
“Phil, don’t be mean, I have been healed of my past, I might still have the physical scars but the emotional ones are gone. What about a TV series like ‘Shameless’ for your siblings,”
“Ha, ha, ha, oh Jennifer Lynn Solomon you are going to be tickled some for that, C’m here!”
The two should know better, fooled around, jumping over the sofa and chairs, chasing each other whilst laughing at each other acting like newlyweds instead of approaching fifty.
