This has proved to be a necessary attribute in a person who finds himself married to me. “I found a skeleton,” I said. ” “It’s a little kid,” I said. ” “You sound shaky,” he said. “More sad,” I said. ” “Crap,” I said. ” I looked at my watch: just after five o’clock. “I think I could make it by eight. ” Dean said he would and I thanked him and placed the phone back on the hook.
