The final frontier?

Babess had finished her dinner, and was clearing her dishes.  I was cleaning up something else.

“Where’s space?” she asked.  I’ve somehow become accustomed to random deep questions at odd moments.  I replied, “Space is everywhere, it’s all around us.  Now put your dishes away and get ready for your shower.”

She gave me the oddest look, and stood there with her hands full.

“Where’s a space for my plate?”

I glanced at the bench.  It was pretty crowded with dishes already.

Oh.  Space.  I cleared one for her.
