Great Neck Notebook: March 21, 2012

“When You’re Right…”

It was a peaceful Sunday morning; I was sitting at the breakfast table finishing an onion roll with butter.  Gail walked into the kitchen and in a sleepy voice asked, “Would you cut me a lemon for my tea.”

“Sure.” I went to the refrigerator and saw the lemon in question on the top shelf. 

“You have to wash the lemon before you cut it.”

“I know that,” I replied with some feigned indignation. “And you knew that I knew it.”

“So?”

“So, why did you say it?”

“Cause even though you knew it, didn’t mean you’d do it.”

“When you’re right, you’re right.”   Then I washed the lemon.
