Crossed purposes.

Crossed purposes.

“Darling that digital photo frame you bought is no good”
My wife looked up from her book, “Really”, she said.
“It has hardly any internal memory”, I continued, “It’s useless”.
My wife stood and hugged me, “Aww. Never mind”. She looked into my eyes, “Just because it’s got no internal memory doesn’t mean it’s useless.”
“What?”, I said.
“No you’ve just got to treat it delicately and make sure you feed it little bits of information at a time ..”
“Huh?” I grunted
“.. and keep deleting the bits that are not needed any more. It can’t cope with too much at once.” She put her head on my chest, “then it’ll all be OK Darling, it’ll all be OK.”
I heard myself make that sound again, “Huh?” as it dawned on me that my wife may not be talking about the same thing that I’m talking about.
After our short embrace I continued on my way to take my anxiety meds.
