Kathleen and I are sitting alone in the living room, discussing what to watch on TV.
Me: “If you put on Phineas and Ferb, I will let you stay up later!”
Kathleen: “Ok, fluff belly!” She elbows me in the ribs as she says this. Then leaning slightly away, she puts her near hand to one side of her mouth, like she is trying to talk to someone across the room without me hearing. “I don’t know why I call him that!”
Me: “Who are you talking to?!?”
Kathleen: “The audience.”
I give a belly laugh.
Kathleen smiles slyly at me. Then returning her hand to the side of her mouth: “Don’t try that at home folks!”
