Stupid Commas

The other morning just before I headed out to work, I went into our bedroom where CJ and Lucy were.  I gave Lucy a kiss goodbye, and then another for CJ.  Just as I turned to walk out, this is what I HEARD my wife say:

“I have to shave Lucy, so I’m going to sit right by you.”

Wait…  WHY ARE YOU SHAVING LUCY?!?

It was a full two seconds later that I realized I was missing a comma here.  What CJ actually said was:

“I have to shave, Lucy, so I’m going to sit right by you.”

*facepalm*  Ok.  Better now.

Stupid commas.
