The Mrs. adds her two cents

One of the great things about being a gifted columnist and being married is that you have an in-house critic. You don't have to wait for the reviews to come in. The moment you set foot downstairs after your shower in the morning, the first review is waiting for you.

This morning, The Mrs. was commenting on yesterday's post. You should read that first if you want this to make any sense.

The Mrs. said to me this:
"You forgot to mention about how on your first trip to Connecticut, you came home with a bad case of walking pneumonia from that 'cozy New England weather'."
One of the great things about being a gifted columnist is that you get to nit-pick your critics in order to make yourself seem smarter and then hide behind your Certification of Truthfulness as an excuse. So, in order to be completely true, "walking pneumonia" is caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae. What I had was a regular old viral pneumonia.

Interestingly, The Mrs. let the Satan comment slide.

The Mrs. is a bigger person than I am, so it seems.
I would have never, ever, let such a comment slide.
The JohnnyB, you are hereby warned... just in case.
