Domestic comedy

[Fixing our dryer’s venting .]

“Do you think we can work together without both of us yelling at each other?”

“No, but I think we can work together without each of us yelling at the other.”

And we did (work together that is, minus yelling). The connection between our dryer’s hose and duct was, it turns out, the kind of slipshod job known (at least in our house) as a “homeowner’s special.” Now we have a new hose and new duct, solidly attached, one to the other, both shining above a new laundry-room floor.

Wow... One of you corrected the other's grammar (in the middle of the dryer not working) and it didn't make things worse??? Bold, but risky.

There’s nothing like correcting grammar to lighten things up.

At least sometimes. :)
