karl: sometimes i wake up and i am excited about eating cereal. it makes my whole day. especially if i remember i bought cinamon toast crunch.
me: FA-reak. show.

tonight, leaving the restaurant approximately 7:30
karl: i need to pick up my prescription from kroger before 8
me: ok, but i'm going to have to pee (WARNING - i have had two glasses of water with dinner and we are about ten minutes from home)
karl: you can make it. (and again: "you can make it" as we drive BY OUR STREET - me staring longingly towards the house - on the way to kroger)
as we get out of the car i feel i might pee my pants (it hurts; it's worse than jumping jacks people)
karl: maybe we can look at grills while we are here.
me: withering death stare, eyes welling up with tears
we make it in the kroger; karl starts looking for grills, i begin to cry. literally.
karl, exasperrated: JUST TAKE THE KEYS and I WILL WALK HOME.
me: grab keys and RUUUUN. (i went back and picked him up!)
