Marital Musings (December 22, 2014)
. . .
H1 “So she said we had to set aside some time for a conversation. I knew it would get bad.”
H2 “You don’t get to say anything.”
H1 “Except when spoken to. So she said she had to confess that she was thinking about someone else while we were in medias res. And she said that she was now happy to have gotten if off her chest. I said that was fine. She could be thinking about Mr. Magoo if it will get us through the night. From my perspective, if I can handle the kitchen remodel, junior can get braces. But it ended up not being fine. I should have been upset. She was upset that I was not upset. I was beginning to get sort of upset that she was upset that I was not upset.”
H2 “Nothing about Gina Lollobrigida.”
H1 “She would have exercised the proviso ‘til death do us part’ and parted with me.”
. . .
H2 “She asked if I noticed that she had put on weight. I had not noticed, so I told her that I had not noticed. I am thinking that I get 100 points for candor and honesty and being a great guy and for being a little oblivious. Maybe an MVP award and a hall pass.”
H1 “And she was upset that you were not upset. And it was Katie bar the door with Katie showing you the door.”
H2 “I didn’t get a pass. I told her that once she made the cut and was on the team, things like that did not really matter.”
H1 “And she parsed every phrase.”
H2 “‘Made the cut’ and ‘on the team’ are two separate concepts. Saying that it is like two wrestlers who make weight and then each go off and have bacon cheeseburgers did not assuage her anxiety.”
. . .
H1 “We conversed with a counselor who opined about psychological affairs versus physical affairs and provided few insights to address our financial affairs.”
H2 “Do you think he was safe?”
H1 “She is sure that we only talk about sex.”
H2 “Safe by a mile. Replay is clear.”

The COMEX is instituting trading collars for the sale of gold and silver. And the answer to Will Shortz’ “Sunday Puzzle” seeking the correct anagram for “Comex” is . . . “Fraud.”
