You know what I’d like to do?
I know you’re not a mind reader, silly. That’s why I’m going to tell you.
I’d like to go the the coast, you know, like we did last summer. It was a fabulous vacation. The best we’ve ever had together.
And how lucky was it that we were able to time our vacations at the same dates. I mean, after that business two years ago when we almost had to honeymoon separately because of scheduling mix ups. What a fiasco that was.
Even though it was a great vacation I really don’t want to get the same cabin. It was so dirty and in need of some minor repairs. Yes, you’re right. After we swept and dusted it wasn’t too bad. It did serve its purpose and made those two weeks even more memorable. What with the refrigerator turning itself off then on again and melting our ice cream, and all.
It was all so romantic. The sound of the waves crashing, the smell of the ocean, the breeze blowing the shabby curtains. Yes, very romantic. Well, except for the night we did it on the beach. It’s not nearly as romantic as the movies make it out to be. I mean, all that sand! And all the places where we found it later. Not very pleasant at all.
Yes, yes, of course you’re right. Vacation in the summer just won’t work this year. So what do you think about a trip to the city in the fall. Maybe October? It will be so awesome to peruse the art museums, take in a play or two and stay in a five star hotel.
So that’s what I’d like to do. What to you think, Honey?
Looking down she awaited his approval. But the cold, gray gravestone gave no reply.
