Overheard at Booth 3: Stepping Stones

Husband: Hey, babe, the Pastor's wife told me that they don't need the marble anymore.

Wife: OK, what happened?

H: That last freeze, some pipes broke, ruined their kitchen.  Insurance is going to cover the complete renovation.

W: Sounds good. Now we just have to take the pieces to the dump.

H: Well, I was wanting to ask you something.

W: Yeah?

H: You know how the back yard gets soggy all the time?  And how I get my shoes sopping wet while taking out the trash?

W: I think I know where you're going with this.

H: Why don't I just get sledgehammer and ...

W: Oh no.

H: I can make stepping stones.  Sure, they might be smooth but ...

W: Do you want me to tell you how many things are wrong with that suggestion?

H: What?  I mean ... it's stone.

W: God you're so cute sometimes.  I'm gonna tell all my construction guys tomorrow what you just suggested and we'll have ourselves a big ol' laugh.

H: Why?  Will it not work?  Why wouldn't it work?

W: Babe, let's just say that you're good for a lot of things, but when it comes to home repairs and landscaping and construction, leave that to the experts.  Like me!
