H: I’m calling because I just wanted to tell you, I had a revelation this morning.
M: Oh, really?
H: Yeah. I realized that this is all we got – this life is all we got, and I’m glad I’m spending it with you.
M: You only realized that this morning?
H: No! No. I just… you know when something hits you? All of a sudden? I just felt thankful for you.
M: I feel thankful for you every day.
H: So do I! Listen, I shouldn’t have called it a revelation, because that makes it sound like it’s the first time it occurred to me.
M: That’s right.
H: It was more of a deeper feeling of appreciation.
M: What brought it on?
H: I don’t know. Maybe the peace. Maybe watching you sleep. I don’t know.
M: Well, thanks for saying that. I’m glad I’m spending my life with you, too, even when you piss me off.
H: Sorry, you cut out for a minute there. What did you say?
M: I said “I’m glad I’m spending my life with you, too.”
H: You said something else at the end.
M: I said, “Good luck at the dentist.”
H: Oh. Thank you.
M: You’re welcome.
