Conversation with a currently unemployed husband.

“How was work today?” he asked, as usual. It’s routine. “It was OK. You know, work,” I replied, as I found my way to the couch. It was silent then while I reflected on my own day. Busy, as usual. Still learning the ropes.

But then it occurred to me to ask about his day.

“So, uh,” I started, “was there anything good on TV today?”

Oh, to be unemployed.
