My beautiful wife (pictured above with 2/3 of our clan in 2009) just wrote me this poem/email:

what is you doing up in there my love?
why you not here eating face chocolate good?
what snuggles handsome all in the place?
me only.


What I think she’s trying to say here is “Honey, it’s 4pm – I miss you and I hope you can leave work on time.” But does she embellish?  Yes.  Is she brilliant?  Yes.  Does she like it when people ask and answer their own questions as a way to avoid expressing plain truths?  No.
