Love means making the important sacrifices

Me: “Mom wants to know if we want to go camping for a weekend, but she thinks that all the cabins might be booked, so we’d have to do the tent thing.”

Alfred: “Um, well, up to you.  I’m up for whatever, but I’ve never really camped or put up a tent or done anything outdoorsy.  I’d be pretty much useless.”

Me: “Okay.”

Alfred: “I’d be useless in case of a Zombie Apocalypse, too.”

Me: “Oh, I know.  I’ve already decided to throw you under the proverbial bus if that happens.”

Alfred: (joking) “Well, I can run faster scared, than the zombies can mad!”


…bless him.  He thinks I’m kidding.
