"We need to fluff the spinnaker"
 
My wife just said this to me: "We need to fluff the spinnaker."

Me: "Huh?"

Her: "The cat has been using it as a cat bed, but it's starting to look matted down. I think we need to fluff it."



I think she was being genuine, although maybe this is her subtle way of telling me to get the sails out of the bedroom....

Dude, if she's noticing sail shape in any form - just roll with it. Say, "Wow, I hadn't noticed. Good catch."

I know, right? It's almost like she's taking an interest in sailing!

She's always enjoyed the post-sail cocktails, but this is the first time she's commented on sail shape.

That's funny. I can so relate with her. I'm always giving the boat parts new names... The captain just smiles and goes with it. I love him

Its better to luff the spinnaker than to fly the cat...

If our Landseer slept on our spinnaker I would be saying, Honey, we need a new spinnaker. Fluffing it just wouldn't cut it.

As long as she knows what "fluffing" is, you're in good shape. :D

I guess the cat's out of the bag then?

Maybe that's her way of telling she needs to go sailing this Christmas.
