What It’s Like Talking to Me #5

Another email, this one from 2006: 


Paul returned from his TDY last week and was cleaning up around the house.

Paul:   We need Windex
Kari:   We have Windex wipes
Paul:   Where?  I don’t see any.
Kari:   Hmm…I don’t know.

Tonight, Paul and I were sitting on the couch with the dogs.

Paul:   Guinea smells.
Kari:   Maybe Flash peed on her.
Paul:   You think?
Kari:   Once, I caught him peeing on her back as she was peeing outside.
Paul:   REALLY?
Kari:   Yes.  I had to bring her in and clean her up.

Long pause.

Kari:   I remember what happened to the Windex wipes.

She spends her days straddling the fence between a sense of adventure and a sense of paranoia. She is married to what is clearly a patient man and has a daughter who, frustratingly, is just like her. Her academic and professional backgrounds are in linguistics and foreign languages. When she's not teaching ESL, she's writing. When she's not writing, she's thinking. When she's not thinking, she's watching the news. When she's ambiguous, it's intentional.
