“Where she was admittedly a little self absorbed he was generous. Where she was an emotional box of rocks ,he was stable.”
Karla Telega, Box of Rocks

“Ted strolled into the kitchen in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms, looking way too chipper for present company. He snagged a muffin and poured a cup of coffee. "What are you girls up to today, and should I notify the authorities?"

"I'm planning to starch all your shorts before lunchtime," Maggie grumbled, adding, "Bwa-ha-ha!"

"I think that was specifically addressed in our marriage vows."

Cher looked over the list they had made. "Our first hobby is paranormal investigations", she mused. "Does that mean we have to stay up all night staking out some graveyard?"

Maggie grunted and propped her head up with one hand. She turned a bleary gaze up to Ted. "If we don't come out alive, there's a pot pie in the freezer.”
