Sue sat on the sofa knitting while Bob sat nearby in his recliner.
Bob’s laughter broke the silence.
“What’s so funny?”
“What do you mean?”
“You just laughed and I was wondering what you were reading.”
“Yes,” Sue answered with a soft smile. “You were reading a book.”
“Yes. The one on your lap.”
Bob looked down.
“Oh, of course. I must have fallen asleep or drifted off or something.”
Several minutes later Bob laughed again.
Sue paused and wondered if he was rereading the same page.
