I hereby apologize to Sweetie. (Quote of the Day 42)
I didn't know whether to jump or duck.
-- Sweetie, in response to a joke I made a long time ago.
The joke was this: We were walking along, at night, outside the park where our wedding reception was held. There was a plane up overhead, a jet, and Sweetie looked up at it and said "Isn't that plane kind of low?"
I looked up and said "Yeah, it is. In fact, it's coming right at us!"
And Sweetie got scared and screamed and huddled at me and then got mad and said I wasn't funny and that she'd believed me. That's when she said the quote, which I've always thought was a funny one, and have always chuckled about, because who gets hit by an airplane, right?
Then I heard the news today.
