A conversation in the Hammer-Widenberg home:
GH: Do you have anything for the MFA?
IW: No. Do you?
GH: Not really.
(Some minutes pass.)
GH: Oooh, I got it.
(Many more minutes pass.)
GH: You know how the Vegas team is still coming up with a name?
GH: And you know how there’s one that they want as a backup but they really don’t want it as a primary name?
IW: I know where you’re going with this…and I know what picture you’re using!
(GH turns laptop around to reveal what she’s been working on.)
IW: I thought about putting that in an MFA last week but you did that one that day, so I didn’t bother. But, I wasn’t going to put it on a t-shirt.
GH: We win the being-married-for-a-long-time prize. (High fives!)
Yes, there are times when we know exactly what the other person is doing, even communicating it without using any real words to give it away. Yet, we’re still bad at Taboo and Charades. What gives?
Anyway, the new Vegas team hasn’t made up their collective mind yet about a name. All sorts of people are working at it. They probably won’t pick that name and definitely not that jersey. Sigh.
A girl can dream, can’t she?
