I married an accountant. We call him The Wizard.
Why? Because he makes us! LOL! See years ago, The Wizard and I challenged another couple to a game. The four of us picked several stocks and we all tracked them. The Wizard put the stocks into a spreadsheet…okay never mind. Yeah, we are THAT exciting. Anyway, we picked names for this game (oh stop laughing…it really was fun!) and my husband picked The Wizard. And for the record, he won the stupid game.
He wins everything. We played couple’s Bunko for a year or so, and he won all the time there too.
However I feel compelled to point out that The Wizard has not won LOTTO! At least not a big one. He’s won a few dollars, but come on Wizard, put that magic to use and win the big one!
Anyway…I was going to tell you about a conversation with The Wizard. I figured I’d give him a name instead of just the husband, or the one he really hates, hubby. So on weekend mornings, we make breakfast and chat. We’re sitting there talking, and he says. “Your birthday is on a Saturday.”
“How do you know that?” My birthday isn’t for a while and I haven’t looked to see. So I’m wondering why he has.
“I was flipping through my calendar at work for all my deadlines.”
I groaned at that word. DEADLINE makes me shudder right now. “I haven’t even looked to see what day my September first due date is on. I don’t want to know. I just want to focus on the book.”
The Wizard grins at me. “Don’t worry, Jen. If your late on your due date, they’ll just perform a cesarean.”
I stared at him in horror. “Like they’ll just cut me open and pull the book out?”
The Wizard laughed, thinking this was hilarious.
I’m having nightmares of editors chasing me with really sharp knives.
So how was your weekend? By the way, I saw THE PROPOSAL on Saturday and loved it!
