Nothing much came of Rebecca being home alone last weekend. True to form, she was quite productive around the house, cleaning the garage, and even assembling a desk for my Father's Day gift.
Her two nights out were pretty early and uneventful. She limited herself to one glass of wine so she could drive herself home.
Last night, we met L and J out for dinner since our daughter was staying overnight at their house, and we live about half an hour apart.
The kids sat together at the far end of the table while the four of us had dinner and discussed our upcoming vacation we're taking together this summer.
The house we're renting is near a large lake, so Rebecca thought it would be fun to rent a boat and teach the kids to waterski.
She wanted to run this by L and J, but her lead-in allowed for A LOT of interpretation.
"We were thinking of trying something new this year with you guys and wanted to run it by you"
" We wanted to see if you would be okay trying it."
"something we haven't done before that could be fun"
All the while, she hadn't mentioned what it was she was thinking of, and I could see J's gears grinding in his head.
Rebecca, in her usual lovely innocence had no idea what she sounded like, so I had to jump in and tell her to tell them what she had in mind, because I could tell that J was getting his hopes up.
When I said that, she said "we were thinking of renting a boat". About the same time he jokingly said "wife swap".
I was laughing as I welcomed him to my world, where she can say things to get my mind wandering while all the time meaning something completely innocent.
J was sitting next to me, and Rebecca didn't know what he said until I told her when we got home. Of course she was "shocked". I just laughed it all off.
