My wife and her friend have been conspiring. They feel their other friend needs a girl day out, just the girls shopping and lunch, their treat. So they've talked it out between the three of them, finalizing their plans....
They thought the friend needed a girl day out because she's always with her husband, doing physical things, hiking, camping, kayaking. They're retired. He's quite fit and loves doing these things, along with biking. She does not seem so fit and they worry that she is not herself. They know her history, which isn't pretty, although he and she have been married for 30 years, but they worry that he's becoming too controlling and she's becoming too submissive.
I don't know how much of this is true but thhere was a sort of weird, surprising development this morning. The girlfriend is apparently proposing that her husband drive them around for their shopping and lunch. He wouldn't be with them, except when driving, but would wait for them in the car while they shop and lunch. The proposal struck my wife and friend with worries and questions. It'll be curious to see how it falls out.
On the plus side, I'll have the house to myself this afternoon. I'm very excited.
