Art by William Adolphe Bouguereau

Dee was checking the progress of his secret recipe for soupstock.
I was feeling thoughtful and reflective, searching for purpose and meaning in my life.
I asked him as he sniffed and stirred his masterpot,
"What should be my goal this year?"

Standing at the stove with his striped jammies tucked in at the waist,
he suddenly twirled around the kitchen in his socks
struck a familiar pose and started to sing his answer:

"Ah, ah, ah, ah...
Stayin' alive, just stayin' alive."

Good goal, Dear.

(Being married to a guy who makes me laugh
is a fun way to live.)
