Yesterday M and I were driving in the car, talking about our relationship as we often do while driving. (For some reason it's always easier to talk freely when we're not facing each other. And there's something about driving that makes us calm and well, talkative). We were talking about how much the direction of our lives have changed:
M: "I feel like someday I'm just going to wake up and be a husband and father."
me: "Uh huh."
M: "And just the other day, I was sitting there thinking about the last time I ate meat. I haven't had meat yet this week..."
me: "That's great baby... "
M: "It's like someday I'm going to wake up and be a vegetarian."
me: "Uh huh..."
M: "...and honestly, that scares me the most of all."
me (bewildered): "More than the whole husband and father thing?"
M (really seriously): "Definitely."
