"Hey," he smiled at his wife, as she entered the kitchen, tired from a long day's work. "I've already started dinner, so just sit back, relax, I'll let you know when it's done."
She went to the bedroom to change, returning shortly thereafter. She watched as he finished searing the meat, adding vegetables and potato bites. He served the plates while she poured the drinks.
Sitting down, she asked, "What happened to Jim? I thought we were having him over for dinner."
His face went from smiling to glaring as he put her plate in front of her and he answered, "Oh, but we are, my dear, we are."
