Marry Well! Marry Well!

We're all in the car driving home from piano lessons.

Kate: "Mom, can we go out to lunch today?" (Typical question after piano)

Mom: "No, dad told me before I left that when I got back he wanted to go out for a meeting."

Katie: "That probably means another trip to Starbucks" (spoken with a slight hint of sarcasm)

Mom: "Yep! It probably does." (spoken with a huge hint of expectation and joy)

Kate: "You always have meetings with dad at Starbucks." (subtle attempt at manipulation and guilt)

Kristin: "Marry well Katie! marry well!" (wise advice from an older sister who loves Starbucks!)
