When I set off for the Calabrian Women’s Summit 2007, it marked the first time that P and I would be apart overnight. I knew I’d be OK since I’d be in the company of wonderful funny women, but P was left with some alone time–and he used it to be alone, only leaving the house to walk Luna.
So over the weekend, P got some serious thinking in, and here’s the transcript to prove it.
During our first embrace, the following transpired (translated into English–mostly):
P: You know I was thinking…
M: About what?
P: About us.
M: Uh huh. What about us?
P: That we’re like a lamp.
M: Oh? How so?
P: Well, in order for a lamp to work, you need two wires, two forces working together.
P: A positive (*points to me*) and a negative (*points to himself and smiles*).
P: And when they’re together, they can make something beautiful, like light.
M: *blushes and squeezes him tighter*
P: Or, you know, in our case, like a baby…una famiglia.
M: *double blushes and tears up*
(Just to be clear, no announcements are forthcoming at this point.)
