The Joys of Attention Deficit Disorder

I was having one of those lovely wifely conversations with my dear husband the other day.
We were talking about bad habits.
His, of course.
I was telling him he shouldn't smoke.
In my discourse, I touched on the fact that I smoke a cigarette occasionally.
I enjoy wine (sometimes lots of wine)
I have several cups of coffee every morning.
But all of these things, I can take or leave.
I dont even drink coffee during the summer when I am out of school.
"I just dont' have an addictive personality, " I bragged to him.
He glanced at me in the typical Tom way, one eye closed against the smoke from his Marlboro.
"You dont' have any bad habits," he intoned, "you can't concentrate long enough to develop any."
There are advantages to ADD.

Sounds like a husband kind of remark!  The kind they say so you will swat at them after they say it and they can grab your wrist and pull you into their lap.  I like porches.  Even have a porch.  Me and hubby drink coffee out there most every evening after he comes in from work.  Will probably join you on yours again soon! - Barbara
