Me: I would do anything to please you – except, you know, work.

The Wife: It brings me great pleasure when you work.

Me: Why does it have to be work? Why can’t it be my creative dreams?

The Wife: I’m very practical.

Me: What was I thinking? Why did I propose to someone who I was going to be forever disappointing? On the other hand, it makes sense that I proposed to someone who was going to make sure I get fed, since I couldn’t be counted on to do that for myself.

The Wife: You don’t forever disappoint me.

Me: No, not forever. Just regularly.

The Wife: Besides, isn’t that the usual dynamic? Women wanting…

Me: Husbands failing to give?

The Wife: Yeah. Isn’t that how it usually goes?

Ah, l’amour…

    If you ever put anything like this is a script (steal, writer, steal), look out, Judd. As long as the wife writes it with you. (That’s my personal rule as well.)
