Why The Hermit and I make a good couple

Tonight I got home late from work, and we were making dinner together, we had decided on grilled Italian sausages with fried onions and green peppers, one of my favorites. We were listening to music, as usual, this time The Be Good Tanyas' "Chinatown", which was a pleasant surprise I found at the local library. I have been listening to this album on the way to and from work, letting it grow on me and become one of my favorites, and as I was listening to one of the songs there in the cook shed I remarked, totally off the top of my head: "They sound like a more folky, all female version of the Cowboy Junkies."

The Hermit replied, without a moment's hesitation: "That's exactly what I was thinking!"

I could tell he was sincerely thinking that, not just saying it, after all after sixteen years of marriage I think you can read each other.

Believe me, we are not on the same wavelength a lot of the time, but those times we are are oh so sweet. :)

Ahh, the grand conjunction. Happens around here occasionally too.

And here as well, different languages be damned. In Band-aidese, it is known as telepathia.
