“It’s my turn.”

“Is not.”

“Is so. You’ve been at this all day.”

“And what a glorious day it’s been. See the sky? Wait, let me change that. There! See the sky? How the hues blend from yellow to orange to a soft pink?”

“You are getting dangerously close to interfering in my turn.”

“Oh come on. You always get close to mine. Just one more minute.”


“And… lights out. Now it’s your turn.”

“It’s about time.”

“Darling, it is only about time.”

“Silvery moon. Check. And some twinkling stars. Ah yes, it’s going to be a glorious night.”
