C: Why did you tell Becky we're back.
M: I didn't.
C: How did she know, then?
M: I don't know how she knows. She's the pastor's wife, maybe she's got some sort of special Holy Spirit tracking device or something.
C: Don't give people dates of our trips. We just got back and I just want to decompress and I need to clean my car and go get groceries this weekend and Kaci's just moved into her new apartment and she wants us to come see it and I need to get the stuff to continue renovating the kitchen and Becky's wanting me to help set up for the church's 5th anniversary.
M: Just tell her you can't.
C: I can't do that! Don't you know how that'll LOOK?! That's why I told you not to tell them when we were getting back from vacation.
M: Again ... I didn't tell them,
C: Well, if you'd just told them we'd be gone until October, I wouldn't have to be roped into this thing at church.
Later that morning, when M opened up the daily Bible devotional on his phone, the verse of the day:
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, 'Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, 'Here am I; send me.'" - Isaiah 6:8
