And flew away, as you suggested.

And?

And she came and asked why I did it.

What did you say?

“I wanted to.”

Good answer.

Apparently.  She hugged me.

Good job.

It was just a cookie.

No, it was a course correction.  You feel you two moving in a new direction now?

3

Yeah.  How do I keep it going?

1

Keep feeding her.

Cookies?

No, no.  Emotional feeding.

With what?

Well, there are four foods we need from our important relationships.

And if we don’t get that stuff regularly…

We starve.

Okay.  I fed her attention with the cookie.  How can I show acceptance?

1

Name something she does that she knows annoys you.

Watches reality tv.

Huh.  That’s a tough one.

Why?  What are you suggesting?

1

Sit and watch with her.

Holy mother of God.

Not for long.  Ten minutes.

You’re kidding, right?  “The Kardashians”?

Neverthless.  Do it for the marriage.

I’m not sure any marriage is worth it.

Now, now.  Just once.  Treat it like an experiment.

1

3

Okay.  (Gulps.)  I’ll try.

2

Good man.  Be brave.  Be  curious.

Can I be drunk?
