Like an elephant, I never forget. And that means I still haven’t forgiven Peter for not being able to identify the moment that he realized he was in love with me.
It was over last Thanksgiving that I gave our children a detailed description of the moment when I realized that I loved their father. I suggested that Peter tell the kids about when he knew he was in love with me. “I have no idea,” he said.
I thought of that exchange on Sunday when Peter was, as usual, deeply immersed in the crossword puzzle. I asked him which of the follow activities he preferred: The New York Times crossword puzzle or cuddling with me.
“Cuddling with you,” he replied.
Got that one right.
