cloudy

Walking with husband.

Me: "It's really spring now. Look at those clouds. Those are spring  clouds, the floofy kind...

Him "Cumulus."

Me: "Yup, cumulus. They are my favorite. You don't get them so much in the winter."

Him "Too cold."

Me "I guess. In the winter you get stratus, and cirrus. Those are like clouds that are not even trying. Just sort of phoning it in...."

Him: "Right"

It's the 'Scientific" mind and the "Creative" mind difference.

I can go either way, i think-- but so can he. Good for us both to stretch a little.

It's nice when you can achieve balance and complement each other.

I get that sort of conversation. Dinner on Sunday was hilarious, with my Sal telling us all about how she's practicing archery for Rio 2016. Totally surreal.

They happen here very often, especially when Sal's home.

its a nice example of integrated dialogue - as opposed to Becketts' discontinuous dialogue I think!

Great, now you've earwormed me with Simon and Garfunkel's "Cloudy". (Does anyone else but me even REMEMBER that song? It was definitely an album track, not a single.)
