T-181 : Sleepy Affirmations

I don't really know how to spell "uh huh".  It's the slangy word that means "yes".  I recognized the other day that Tara said it sleepily as I was climbing into bed.  I think she was already nearly asleep but just conscious enough to agree to allow me to join her under the covers.  I think I've done the same thing from time to time.  It's much better than the grunts and groans that I sometimes elicit when covers are being pulled seemingly unfairly, children are coughing too loudly in the other room, or things generally are just not going the way that I want them to go and I hope for change by making guttural noises.  I'll try to do better.  How about you?
