1. I recall sitting with a friend and commiserating about our (then) eldest teenagers who were the same age and both giving us a really hard time. My friend told me something her daughter had done and I burst out with “Oh, I would NEVER put up with that!” And then we both laughed ironically as I said “Oh, who am I kidding?” Other people’s problems are so much easier to solve than our own…thank you for this. Truly lovely…

  2. I’m also thinking, maybe he is telling her about his own problems, trying to persuade himself what to do, as sometimes you do, by telling someone else. And she is thinking – How much longer can I keep from telling him that his plan is the dumbest thing ever! I must hold it in! I enjoyed this little story picture very much, with its ambiguity! and your characters are perfectly done.
