The day had started off as normal. The alarm rang at six thirty. It’s beep beep beep slowly pulling me from sleep. Over the years I've come accustomed to it but it still irritates my wife, Lucy.

I do as she commands. Instantly, she curls into a fetal position under the blankets, keeping the cold winter morning at bay.
