I only go out on my own once a month. I go to a book group on the second Tuesday of the month. When I leave after bed time, I don’t shut the inner front door as it makes an audible click, and I gently shut the actual front door. I make no sound leaving.
But M’laddo knows. Even though he’s usually asleep by the time I go, he’s somehow knows and I always come back to find him in bed with Wifey. It must be some sort of telepathy and if it is, when he’s older I’m taking up Bridge with him as my partner. We’ll make a mint.
