One Act

Scene: A suburban kitchen, 11 pm. At the table sits the Wife, tea cup in hand, books and notebook spread in front of her. Enter the Husband.

Wife: I have one more paper to write, then the final, and then I'm done with this class, and not a minute too soon.

Husband: What's the paper about?

Wife: Drama.

Husband (rolls his eyes): When is your schoolwork NOT a drama? But seriously, what's the topic?

Everyone's a comedian. Ha.

Your husband is a stitch! I suppose he has to be in order to keep up with you. And the boys, junior comedians.

susan said...

I can understand why you like him.

Gifted Typist said...

don't ja love it when they support you like that.

actually humour is the best support of all

CDP said...

3carn--no one laughs harder at my husband's jokes than he does. We have that in common.

Lisa--he's a crack-up, I have to admit.

Susan--yeah, he's all right

GT--yes, and my school travails have given him plenty of material, too.

Did you give "the look"?

Pretty cute. I love your comment too about laughing at his own jokes - if we reversed the genders here we might have a scene played out in my house. He has the drama and I do all the eye rolling.

I have mastered the deadpan blank stare when my husband makes a joke that he then himself heartily laughs at. I think I need a better schtick.

CDP, I hope you don't find it presumptuous of me, but I passed a Bella Award on to you. Stop by and pick it up when you feel inclined.

CDP said...

DG--See my latest post. I suck at "the look".

Elissa--it was pretty funny.

Lady--I'm not that dramatic, but compared to my husband, I am.

Frieda--I try that sometimes. Sadly, it never works...he still laughs his head off.

PEN--That's so nice! I'll be right there!
