We are on our way somewhere in his car.
Wolf: Are you free Tuesday?
Me: I’m going to work. You have to work too, right?
Wolf: Yeah, after that I mean.
Me: I don’t think I have anything planned. I’ll probably have homework to do.
W: We should see if someone can watch the boy for us.
M: Why? What’s going on?
W: I’d like to go to dinner or something.
M: We don’t need a sitter for that. We take him with us all the time.
(Wolf gives me an odd look that I pay no attention to because I’m watching the scenery go by.)
W: You do know what Tuesday is, right?
M: Yeah. The fourteenth. I get paid the next day. So what?
(Wolf is quiet again for a little while.)
W: Okay honey, just try to keep your schedule open Tuesday night.
M: If you say so.
It was a full twenty minutes later when I realized what he was getting at.
