Being married to me is no picnic, but it's certainly never dull. For a change, I think even Angie would agree with me. So would Melonina, if only our edible daughter could speak.

It all started with a sneaking suspicion that Angie was lying to me. Let me explain my deductive reasoning preceding my wife's deceitful comment.

First of all, it was Friday. This is the day after Thursday, the same day that Angie hosts the Pub Quiz at The Dubliner's. I'm sure it has nothing to do with staying up late the night before, but for some reason, Angie is normally dead to the world by Happy Hour on Fridays.

I came home from work on Friday, happy to find Angie in bed 'reading a book' for the boys.

'Honey, get up!'

'I'm up.'

'Yeah, yeah. Come on, get up!'

Despite all of my assumptions, Angie actually scraped herself out of bed. 

'Okay, what now? What do you want?'

'I'm going shopping, but you're staying awake, right?'

'Yeah, yeah. Of course.'

'So, when I leave, you're not going to try and crawl back into bed?'

'Me? No way. I'm awake, go ahead. Go!'

Before leaving, I took a melon, two cucumbers and two zucchinis and decided to test my wife's credibility. I gently laid Melonina into Angie's side of the bed and pulled the covers over her fruity little head. I then wished Angie a happy time while I went shopping.

When I came home, Angie punched me.

'What the hell? Freaky melon-chick scared the crap out of me!'

'So, what you're telling me is that you did try going to sleep?'

'No. And don't try to change the subject.'

'Actually, that is the subject.'

Being married to Angie is no picnic, but it's certainly never logical. For a change, I decided to ignore the point I was trying to drive home.
