He turns to me in the night, my husband, opens his eyes and looks into mine.
It's over, he says. they're all dead.
Who is, I ask?
Everyone, he says. They all died in the Zombie attack.
Us too? I wonder.
No, we survived.
How? I ask.
We escaped in the truck.
What truck? I ask.
The truck, he says, that I'm going to buy you.
And then he proceeds to hold me tight and go right back to sleep.

Marriage, most certainly, has its moments.

Haha I did! :) And thank you! I wondered (for a bit) whether married-people continue to bare their souls on a blog. And then I decided to come back anyway! :)

How've you been?
