Cowboy Boots and Tennis Shoes are residing peacefully in their bedroom. CB is reading her favorite book "To Kill a Mockingbird" and TS is sitting at his desk looking at his stacks of books trying to decide what to read.
The following dialogue preceded:
TS looks up: You know, you would be really pretty if you lived in the 1800's.
CB: Excuse me?
TS: You're face would be considered really pretty back in the 1800's.
CB did not reply but a few thoughts were running through her mind. First, am I not pretty now? Second, how would you know if I would be considered pretty in the 1800's? Third, what the heck is wrong with you?
It's precious moments like that that I savor: The brutal honest of marriage.
