Me: I think after the New Year, I’m going to start running again. You know, like train for a 5k or something.
Him: (snort) (snicker) (cough)
Me: Um, why is that funny, exactly?
Him: Well, honey, I mean, no one trains for a 5k. That’s like saying, “I’m training so I can pick up this jug of milk.” It’s not very far. Like, a block.
Him: Seriously. No one should have to train for a 5k.
Him: I mean, Yay! You’re awesome! Woot!
Him: Love you.
Ed. Note: My husband is tremendously supportive in all things. Like the rest of us, though, occasionally he speaks before the filters kick in. Hoping the stress of the holidays isn’t keeping any of us from feeling the love that the season brings!
