Yes, D$ and I have had a tough few weeks, but there have also been times when things felt normal. Lest you think our home is a sad-sack factory, I give you this (from the day after a particularly difficult conversation):
MWK: The cherry blossoms on X street are gorgeous today! Attaches photo with new fancy smart phone.
D$: You are my cherry blossom on X street.
D$: You are welcome my little tulip.
MWK: Now I am just confused about my flower identity.
D$: Like the stargazer lily that blossoms in the sun, you seem to be having an existential crisis.
D$: Do not despair. I shall love you floral time.
