True Love

by CD Richards


"Yes, honey?"

"Do you love me?"

"Of course I do, Ali. Why would you ask such a thing?"

"Because we never argue."


"Well, Robert and Sue argue all the time, and look at how happy they are!"

"But I don't want to argue with you."

"So you think I consider myself always right and can't stand to be contradicted... is that it?"

"No, most of the time I agree with what you say, and when I don't, it's not such a big issue that I want to cause trouble."

"So, you do think I'm unable to take criticism!"

"Oh good Lord..."

"Or is it just that you don't care?"

"Of course I care."

"But not enough to have an opinion? Or do you just not listen in the first place?"

"Ali, please, stop!"

"Argue with me."


"Humour me... just for once disagree with something I say."

"Like what?"

"I think it looks like rain today."

"The weather bureau says fine through to the weekend, so I don't think so."

"There! That wasn't so hard now, was it?"

"No, dear."

"See, I knew you could do it... you DO love me!"

"No I don't."

"I want a divorce!"
