My wife and I finish each other’s sentences — but not for the reasons you might think.
This time-honored romantic cliché hoping to illustrate how two people are alike — sharing not only the same universe of interests but also thoughts — would be a stretch for us. I like to ride my bike. My wife likes for me to ride my bike — alone. As excitedly as I pack my cycling gear, she excitedly packs the books she will read while I am out burning off what she claims is excess energy.
