Background: My parents have a fantastic marriage. So fantastic I’m pretty sure my brother and sister and I will die alone because we’ll never have what they have. They do annoying things like want to hang out with each other. All the time.
Today, my dad got a portable digital TV. It gets all those digital stations, and he is enamored with it. So much so that his first reaction was, “We could cancel cable now that I have this!”
My mother, his devoted wife of 26 years who doesn’t even have a good engagement story because according to her, “We always knew we wanted to get married!”, replies, “You cancel cable, and I’ll cancel you.”
The woman loves her QVC.
