Conversation With My HusbandPosted: October 12, 2011
Husband (while watching leaves fall off trees): We have a verb for water falling from the sky. You know, raining. Why don’t we have a verb for leaves falling off the trees?
Me: I dunno.
Husband: I think we should make one.
Me: How about “leaving?”
Husband: No, no, that’s already a verb with a defined meaning. Something different.
Me: I know, “falling!” Get it? As in the season?
