Me: David, can we go see the improv show tonight?
What I thought David would say: My love, I would follow you to the depths of the Mordor if it would make you happy.
What David said: I really don’t want to.
Me: But David please!
What I thought David would say: Okay, yes! I don’t know what I was thinking. Truly, the only thing fairer than your gentle face is your bright mind, beloved. You only have the best ideas.
What David said: It’s the same show!
Me: David it’s not the same show. It’s improv! Every show is different.
What I thought David would say: Good point my love! Let us go to the show!
What David said: I really don’t want to go.
Me: Okay, well I could go alone and we could have dinner afterward?
What I thought David would say: Alone!? Men will think you are single and make advances towards you, as you are irresistible. No. I must go with you.
What David said: I feel bad. Are you sure that’s okay?
Me: Yeah! It would be fine!
What I thought David would say: Oh you! You are too good to me! Moments apart from you are not moments worth having. I will come!
What David said: Great! I’ll see you for dinner!
