Conversation from a Marriage.
Husband: "What happened?"
Wife: "Oh, yeah, the tree fell."
Husband: "Yeah, but what happened?"
Wife: "It broke off and fell" (referring to the HUGE branch that is on the ground, in the backyard, that luckily did NOT fall on the house, but came within a few feet of doing so."
Husbaned: "I can see that. When did it happen?"
Wife: "While you were out of town."
Husband: "Ok. But when? Today? Yesterday?"
Wife: "I think today because it was not there this morning when I took the dog out."
Husband: "But, HOW did it happen?"
Wife: "I don't know. I wasn't standing there watching it."
Husband: "Did it rain here? Were there big storms?"
Wife: "I don't know--I was at work."
Husband: "Well, did it rain in Arlington?" (the city where I work.)
Wife: "I don't know, I was inside."
...I think I frustrate him to no end.
Who cares when, why, & how?
Part of the damn tree broke off the rest of the tree, and it fell to the ground, and that's where it is now. It needs to be moved, and although I tried to lug it down to the curb after watering the flowers, it just weighs too much.
Let's just take it from there & be done with it.
