Conversation from tonight...
Weatherman--And a lot of people will be up in the mountains skiing this long holiday weekend.
Me--There is a holiday Monday? Which one? Is it President's day?
Wife--Martin Luther King day. I am off Monday. You really need to keep track of Federal holidays.
Me--I guess. It is not like I am changing my writing schedule because you are home.
[Nor do I imagine that it really matters from her end either. What is she likely to be doing Monday? Pottery. She always does pottery on days that she is off from teaching.]
