That you can have at 5:45 in the morning with a woman you’ve been married to for 24 years:
Hobbit (stirring): It’s foggy outside.
YHS (muffled): Mrmph?
Hobbit: It’s foggy outside.
YHS(after a pause): Have all the planes been grounded?
Hobbit (not missing a beat): Ain’t the fire inside?
YHS (smiling): Let’s all go stand round it.
Hobbit: Funny, I’ve been there…
YHS: And you’ve been here…
Together: And we ain’t had no time to drink that beer.*
(both fall back to sleep)
* Just in case. Because, there are, you know: Children.
