Me: (yawning) Sorry, I’m so wiped out from yesterday.
Clara: What did you do yesterday.
Me: Well, we took the kids to meet the headmistress at the new skole. Then she said we had to fill out paperwork at a field office, as well as at the skole, and that we could walk there. So we walked 3 kilometers to the office and spent an hour there doing paperwork.
(Clara makes appropriate empathetic expression.)
Me: Then we went to IKEA.
Clara: WHAT!?!!? You went to IKEA?!?!? On the SAME DAY?!?!? You don’t do ANYTHING ELSE on the day you go to IKEA!!! Do you need to sit down???
I guess that’s why I fell asleep here while Paul was assembling furniture with an allen wrench….
