Ellie announced to me in the car today that she wanted to marry her friend Jack.
"Why do you want to marry him?" I asked.
"Because he's good," she replied.
That's a ringing endorsement for a great spouse if I've ever heard one. Simple and to the point. I guess she's already looking for someone like her daddy. I did tell her she has to wait until she's at least 18, though.
