I’M JUST THERE
So I come back from running an errand on Saturday and swoop in to kiss Joe.

Me: Hey Sweetie. What’cha doin?
Joe: Some work (typing on his Mac he looks up at me and then back down at the screen)

Joe: Where are you?
Me: I’m at Tony’s
Joe: I’ve been calling you at home and at the office and was frustrated that I couldn’t reach you.
Me: I told you that I had to go to Tony’s from 2 to 6 tonight.
Joe: You did? When?

Joe: Oh. When are you leaving?
