They were finishing their anniversary breakfast on the balcony when Jill wondered aloud if they could tour the observatory.

“Can you ski on it?” Jack said.

“No,” she said. “You don’t ski in Hawaii.”

“But why not? Hit the beach in the morning and the slopes in the afternoon,” he said. “They’re missing out on a whole industry. You can’t do that anywhere else.”

“It’s not. You can’t.” Jill shook her head. “We’re in Hawaii. You can ski back home.”

“But back home isn’t skiing on a volcano,” Jack said.

“I’m going to throw you into a volcano,” Jill said.

  1. I googled because I felt Jack is getting bad press here, and find that there is indeed skiing in Hawaii (but not recommended/approved on the volcano) so I’ve learnt something and maybe Jill can be gentler with Jack.
