The Daddy Complex

People associate a husband sleeping on the couch with marital turmoil. But, last night when I came home late from an event, I found my wife and sons peacefully asleep together in our bed. So as not to disturb them, I happily opted to sleep on the couch.

By the time I woke in the morning, though, Wyatt had returned to his own bed. And I was like, “My neck hurts, man. You could have given me a heads-up.”
