She had a quizzical expression on her face.  She was curious what he meant when he said he wanted to stay forever.  Was this a proposal or just a statement?  They had only been together a few weeks and it was way too soon to talk about “forever” for them.  She enjoyed their time together but was not ready for a long-term commitment.  The awkward silence after it was said should have been a clue for him, but he just kept on.  “Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to travel back and forth between your house and mine?”

She just replied, “I enjoy the drive time.”

He seemed to be taken aback.  “Are we not on the same page,” he asked?

“Honey,” she replied, “we may not even be on the same book.”
