“I have a headache.”
“Did you take a shower?,” Love asked.
“I tried everything — I took two showers, I took ibuprofen, I drank three glasses of water. I still have it. I’m going to bed,” Mrs. Love said.
It struck me that that was one of the Loves eccentricities. They will raise children who believe taking a shower will cure a headache. That’s just a Thing that will happen.
Every couple has its inexplicable eccentricities. Some put batteries in the fridge. Some put red wine in there. Old wives’ tales persist; I mean, we are still supposed to switch off electronics in a plane, despite Science. [Link 1, 2, 3, 4, infinity.]
Now I’m paranoid that I have a bunch of habits just this side of innocuous that no one has bothered to talk to me about.
