Just a quick one today, because I’m both giddy and busy…. mostly busy doing this instead of the (roughly) 8 billion tasks that actually need doing around here, but how will I ever let people know how busy I am if I don’t make time to tell them?
Now, usually when I call my husband at his desk it’s always sort of awkward: his company has no problem with him taking personal calls while at work, so that’s fine, but he also doesn’t like to broadcast – understandably, I think – that he’s talking to his wife. So I’ll say “I love you” when signing off and he’ll usually say something like, “Yep, you too” or “Sounds good” and I have to sort of accept that that means “I love you too, and am breathless with anticipation of that perfect moment when I see you again.”
But today? Today, I am brilliant; I went with avocados.
ME: I love you bunches. And you can say something like…. avocados if you love me even more than that.
And then we both had a good laugh, so now my day is a little happier
I may try more related-to-his-actual-work terms in the future. Like “ECM” or “skewness”… or “lip seals” and “lubrication.” Because I do love when his work sounds just a little bit dirty.
