Today’s the fourth day.

Does her silence still scare you?

No, not really.

How do you feel?

Kind of sorry for her.

How come?

Since we stopped dancing, she seems sort of lost.  And sad.

I see.

Does she like cookies?

Cookies?  Sure.

What’s her favorite?

Those huge ones.  Chocolate chip.

The ones big as a small pizza?

Yeah.

Go buy one.

Leave it on her pillow.

And say what?

1

Nothing.  Make like the Cookie Fairy.  Leave it and fly away.

Won’t that confuse her again?

1

3

Maybe.  But in a good way.

It’s not appeasement?

No.  It’s paying attention.

Most married people are starved for attention.  And she sounds like she needs some right now.

It’s not the sort of thing I usually do.

All the more reason.

You want to redefine this marriage, right?

1

4

Right.

That means trying new stuff.  Experimenting.  Taking risks.

But what if she rejects my cookie?

1

2

Well, if that happens…
