Our life here on earth is almost completely the result of the choices we make on a daily basis. Like whether or not to go to school, use drugs, read, get married, have kids, and the list goes on forever.
Yesterday I needed to go to the other side of the county for a part for an auger. I asked Marilyn if she wanted to go. She chose to go, after all, she has been couped up in this house with her new knee for two weeks now.
We toured a bit after our stop and eventually got home about two and half hours later. As we got home and walked in the house the phone rang and Marilyn saw the name on caller I.D. and yelled "It's Dan." Our son from Lincon.
Dan: "Hi Dad, I've been calling, where have you been?"
Me: "Oh I needed a part over by Uhling and so I decided to air your Mother out."
Wrong choice of words.
