"When you get home around seven p.m., and there's a phone/DSL/cable bill that seems a little high, and you're tired, and you'd planned on a light barbecue, but it started raining, and then there's some reading you wanted to catch up on, 'toons you wanted to sketch out and also some planning to do for the next day, and, then, the wife says....
'I thought tonight, you'd pay attention to me.'
You go full stop.
Jettison all the extraneous, and, well, pay attention to her.
And you are both happier because you did."
Heard that somewhere. Just thought I'd pass it along.
