Marital Cold Wars


Two weeks ago…


me: Ben… BEN! Don’t forget we have tickets to JazzFest and are meeting Beth.


Ben: Do we have to?


me: It was your idea!


Ben: Really?


me: Oh boy.


Ben: I only want to go with you.


me: Too late.


Ben: I don’t feel well.


me: What are you 10?


Ben: I think one night you said…


me: Shut-up.


Last week…


me: Ben…BEN! When are the Smith’s coming in?


Ben: in May.


me: That’s it? May? It IS MAY!


Ben: So there you have it.


me: What date idiot boy?


Ben: On thursday.


me: There are five of them. You’re killing me.


Ben: The next one.


me: The Date. For the love of God- the DATE.


Ben: Tomorrow.


me: Where is your gun again?






me: Hello.


Ben: How’d you sleep?


me: You were there I think?


Ben: I slept fine.


me: Splendid. What can I help you with?


Ben: I think, I’m not sure, but maybe, I forgot to tell you something.


me: Let’s have it.


Ben: Mike is coming in. He’s staying with us for two nights.




me: Remember when you were in Berlin and the wall was coming down?


Ben: Yea.


me: And I asked you to grab a piece and bring it home ’cause how many people are ever

gonna be able to say they have a piece of The Wall?


Ben: Ah ha.


me: And you didn’t ’cause your chicken shit.


Ben: I wouldn’t say that…


me: And I suggested you move in the opposite direction from the crowd and go INTO East



Ben: What’s your point?


me: I’m giving you another chance.


Ben: To do what- exactly?


me: Grab the Wall.


Ben: Where?


me: Checkpoint Charlie’s.


Ben: Who’s playing smart ass?
