They sat at a right angle to each other, opposite knees almost touching –
he perusing news sites on his smartphone, she absentmindedly counting crochet stitches for her latest project.

In their periphery, they both were watching the next show in their Netflix queue.

He abruptly planted his feet firmly on the ground and stood up.

“I think it’s time I retire,” he said with gusto.

This sudden, unexpected life-changing declaration caused her to lose her place.

“You can’t retire,” she sputtered. “We can’t afford that yet.”

“What are you talking about woman,” he said stretching. “I’m going to bed.”
