On balance

Wouter and I are lying on the bed (hiding from our children so that we have 2 minutes of peace to discuss the day).  Picture the conversation.

S: By the way, the bathroom scale is broken. 

W: (pause) OK.

S: If you see it in the bin tomorrow don’t rescue it.

W: (confused pause) OK?

(no one says anything for a minute)

W: (carefully) So is it really broken?

I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.  Wouter was too scared to ask if I just didn’t like what the scale told me.  I love it when he tries to be tactful!
