Quite the catch

I'm lying in bed, waiting for Elysha to finish brushing her teeth. I've staring at my phone.

I laugh.

"What's so funny?" Elysha asks.

"Nothing," I say. "I'm just reading some haiku that Charles sent to me. This one really has me thinking."

I pause. Wait a moment.

Then add, "That's right! I'm the kind of guy who reads haiku before bed! I'm quite the catch!"

Her response: "Uh huh."

Probably less enthusiastic than I deserve because she still had a toothbrush in her mouth.
