"Honey, you need to get out. Go ahead, call a friend and escape for a while. I'll take care of these---things."With that, she's out the door in 2.5 minutes. She called me from her mobile phone shortly thereafter,
"Hi, Honey. What time would you like me home?"
"Anytime," I said. "Just have fun.""OK," she said excitedly. "See you Sunday."
