VICKI GETS MAD AT TANNER IN JAPAN 02 - “AT LEAST ONE FAMILY WAS HAPPY THAT DAY”
As I was taking a picture of this beautiful family at a shrine in Kyoto, Vicki began a conversation that unfortunately did not lead to a very happy ending…
Vicki: “I wish we would’ve rented kimonos and gotten the full Kyoto experience.”
Me: “I dunna know, I’m more of a pants man.”
Vicki: “You and your pants can go to hell. Way to ruin the moment.”
(For the record, I was unaware that we were even in a “moment”)
Me: “Woah little penguin, what’d I do?”
Vicki: “All you do is take pictures and ignore me. We’ll never be happy like that family.”
At this point Vicki’s eyes began to tear up, so I resorted to my classic “go to” line that I’ve used in countless similar situations.
Me: “Don’t be sad.”
And once again, my classic “go to” line let me down. Vicki immediately erupted into a burst of tears. I really need a better “go to” line.
Also, yes, sometimes I call Vicki “little penguin”.
