Dragons, Part 2

by Dan

The last time I wrote about knights and dragons, I learned some very important things.

First, a few people mentioned that they really liked the story and the moral behind it. I’ve always felt that funny stories, especially real ones, are great communication tools. I’m glad to have experienced that one first hand. And dragons have become a regular conversation topic at our house, which I think will be good for both of us.

Second, I realized that my wife doesn’t read my blog very often. In part, I suspect that’s because I haven’t been writing very regularly. In any case, it looks like I can write whatever I want without worrying about getting in trouble. :)

So in that spirit, I’d like to describe our next conversation about dragons. When it’s cold, she likes to warm the car up by letting it run a bit before getting in or taking the kids anywhere. I can’t say I blame her as sitting in a freezing car is a pretty miserable thing to do.

A few days ago, Cheryl asked me to warm the car up. But she specified that I needed to turn the heater on high, which I normally don’t do as it just blows cold air.

“Thanks for slaying my dragon!” she called as I headed downstairs. I smiled and rolled my eyes a bit. “I just wanted to make sure you knew how to slay it,” she added. I just shook my head.

Yeah, okay. You want your dragon fricasseed.

I think she’s going to have to find some other way to let me know those kind of details. Telling me how to do my job takes away some of the enjoyment.
