Like most couples, my farmer husband and I often see things from a different point of view.
Farmer: This is a plowed field, waiting to be planted.
Missus: It looks like a field full of cocoa powder – or better yet, cocoa powder mixed with icing sugar, ready to be made into chocolate icing.
Farmer: This is a cement mixer.
Missus: With the right sterile insert, this gadget could make a BIG batch of cookies.
Farmer: This is an empty greenhouse table.
Missus: This is where I would put the big batch of cookies to cool, of course.
Farmer: Perfect, just the way he is.
Missus: Diet. Day Two.
