Walter straightened his tie.
“What are you up to, Wally?” Asked his startled wife, Janet.
“I’m adulting today,” replied Walter. Cell phone in one hand, he rummaged through his wallet looking for the phone number he was to call.
“You wear a tie when adulting?”
“I’ve heard this is proper attire for such grownup endeavors.” Walter found the number tucked in his wallet between a gum wrapper and a Lowe’s card.
“Okay, but why are you only wearing a tie?” Janet questioned.
“Ah, yes, hello. One doctor office appointment please !” Walter said, smiling and giving a ‘thumbs up’ to Janet.
Thanks for reading!
