We were both having a conversation. We both knew that too. Even I. Although, an observer listening in and watching us would've thought quite the contrary was going on.
"Hey Honey," I began as I sat down near him, "I need to talk to you about something."
Immediately, my listening husband said, "Okay, talk." And then he picked up his cell phone and made a call.
A few minutes later, I told him again we needed to discuss something.
"Okay, talk," he attentively said as he resumed the program on his computer, giving it his full attention.
The phone rang at this point and he answered it. I knew I definitely couldn't talk now so waited for the call to pass.
After he hung up, he headed out the room. Through the doorway as his voice grew distant, I heard him say, "Honey, you can talk now."
