I turned around, slowly. I had been pouring myself a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats. “What broke?” I said.

“Our picture.” she replied with a touch of pain in her voice.

I walked around the counter to survey the damage. “It’s not our picture, just the frame.” I said hoping this would offer some comfort. “The picture is fine.” I added.

“Looks like our picture will get a new frame.” she said.

With no other available surfaces I had placed the picture on the counter near the microwave – perilously close to the edge.

No sooner had I attempted to accept responsibility for the accident when she said “You had nowhere else to put it.”

And with those seven simple words, she made me feel better too.
