The girls were in bed, maybe two minutes. The mister and I sat quietly in the living room, staring out, without a thing to say. After a couple more minutes of silence, I spoke up,
"The place looks so bare without the Christmas tree."
Another couple minutes of silence.
"I saw this thing on Pinterest once where someone used nails and yarn to make words on a wall."
"I think I remember that."
"You wanna do that above the TV?"
Coolest. Mister. Ever.
