Storm day

“Well, this is a great day to stay home and do nothing at all,” I announce to the room, watching the wind and rain lash the trees outside our living room window. We cluster around the television as the weatherman discusses wind speed and the possibility of tornadoes.

“Uh huh,” Sam says. “This is a good day to be home and not struck dead by lightning.” He nods in agreement with himself, sporting the funny little smile he always gives after stating one of his bona fide, indisputable facts.

We stare at him in silence for a beat, and then burst out laughing. And maybe, just maybe, we’re a little bit more thankful to be here together, warm and dry, as the storm howls itself to exhaustion outside.
