I just had a conversation with the Baron about things.
BARON: The thing has just finished.
ME: Yes, in order to go out I have to put the things on the thing.
BARON: We'd probably better put the thing inside.
ME: Yes, the thing is inside, but in order to put things on the thing I have to take the things off the thing.
I have no idea either. This is basically what married life is like.
A little later, we had another conversation:
ME: The things are all on the thing, but I have more things, so I think I will put it on the thing.
ME: I need to put these things (pointing at these things) on the thing (pointing into another room somewhere).
BARON: (In a strained voice) I have no idea what you are talking about.
At this point, I could only point awkwardly at the things and the thing, as I had done before, and the Baron helpfully said "Oh yes, now I know what you mean."
I wish she'd tell me.
UPDATE! - Reader competition! Perhaps people reading this post - yes, all one of you - could offer creative suggestions as to what the 'things' and the 'thing' is. The best entry gets a hot date! But not with me though. I'm not sharing my hot dates with anyone.
