All she had to say


She says she is not feeling great, that she had this nightmare where a friend of hers turned into a ghost.

"He had white hair all over his chest, and he was undoing the strings of his black-and-white pinstripe shorts. And he kept grinning at me."

I chuckle.

"What's that for?" she asks.

"For your friend's poor choice of clothing for such an important venture."

"I had a bad dream and you're laughing at me," she says, stiffening her petite figure. "That's no way to comfort a distressed wife."
