A recent domestic drama played out in the back yard with the local Scaled Quail family….
Him: Your chicks are in the bushes again
Her: My chicks? What do you mean my chicks?? WTF?
Him: You laid them. Hey! Hey you kids — get out of the bushes! —- Don’t make her come down there.
Her: Me?? (Gives him that look that all husbands will recognize) — You got a broken wing or something?
Him: Nah…I’m busy. I’m on lookout duty.…
Her: Oh yeah? I’ll give you something to lookout for…
(With a little prodding, they both went after the chicks.)
