"Come on cars, move! I'm late for an appointment," i say while waiting in traffic on the Middlesex turnpike. Dan is driving, and comments on a Tom Petty song blasting from the windows of an adjacent car.
"The waiting really IS the hardest part!"
"Yes. It is."
"Hey, what would you say if you were like in the same situation, but as a single guy?"
"Um, i don't know. What?"
"The DATING is the hardest part."
"Ha ha. I get it. Hey, what would you say if you were a giant panda?"
"The MATING is the hardest part! What would you say if you were on Iron Chef?"
"The PLATING is the hardest part. What if you're a white supremisist?"
"The HATING is the hardest part. What if you're a fisherman?"
"The BATING is the hardest part. What if you're cheese?"
"The GRATING is the hardest part. You know, this really is one of my favorite games."
"I am so glad that i married you."
