Armon stepped out of the cab, straightened his tie, and with a sigh he faced the merry-go-round. On the other side he would become hale-fellow-well-met, inventive, energetic, next in line for assistant vice president. No let down for ten hours when he would go home, get into some sweats and dismiss the day care nurse, feed the kids and put them to bed. What would he have left to give Brennie? Inwardly he renewed his promise “for better, for worse, in sickness and in health.” Breathing a prayer he steps in to see if she remembers him tonight.
