Domestic comedy

[We ordered take-out from our Thai restaurant on Monday. We are ordering again on Friday. Elaine doesn’t like it when I inquire too far in advance, like, say, mid-morning Friday, what she might want to get. Today is Wednesday.]

“Any ideas about what to get?”

“Something different from what we got Monday.”

“That was your cue to throw something at me.”

Nah, this exchange ended in amusement. But our restaurant does serve a duck dish, or at least it’s on the menu. I’m not sure there’s much call for it.

Wait a minute — I just realized that you were making a joke about food. Which makes my joke redundant. I’m not always thinking clearly these days.
