Conversations with the Husband

Cue: Me, looking at the phone last night as I got into bed.

"You know, honey, if the call comes and you don't answer it, its not going to change the answer."

"Oh. You're right. Either its yes or its no and I know what to afterwards."

"Although, some string theorists say that by observing the decision, you could change it. Both decisions are there."

"But, the call wouldn't be the decision, would it?"

"Oh, right. That's the reporting of the decision. There is no actual way you can observe the decision in progress."

"Yeah. So, either I get a reporting of the decision or I listen to the recording of the reporting of the decision."

"Right."


*pause*

"I'd still rather answer the phone and hear it with my own ears."

"I know, honey. I love you."

"Foibles and all?"

"Foibles and all."

"I love you, too."
