|Can this marriage be saved?|
June 29, 2014
You remember my dear friend Sofie? I have set up a rendezvous, so I will be gone for a couple of days. She is such a breath of fresh air!
Now, don't be jealous, my pet. You know how you persecute people and become generally unpleasant when you get that way. Then I have to apologize to this person and that. Really, you can be such a beast!
You should learn to be more open, my dear. I look around and see all the women, each of them beautiful in her own way, and I want to embrace them all! Such diversity! Oh, I can see that this is making you very jealous indeed! But never doubt that I am a loyal husband!
Oh, I forgot to tell you, but I'll be spending next weekend with Francesca. She's so spontaneous! I must confess I simply adore her. You know, not to be critical, but you might learn a thing or two from her.
I am a loyal husband, so do not get upset. Yes, you're a stodgy old dowager with blood on her hands, but I'm a loyal husband. One-hundred percent faithful. How could you ever think otherwise, silly?
I saw my old friend Antonia yesterday. She looked marvelous! She hadn't aged a bit since last I saw her. I expect you'll remember last time we met her together -- talk about ancient history! -- you insulted her. She still holds that against you, but I apologized for your outrageous behavior and tried to smooth things over. We had a lovely dinner and conversed late into the evening. Oh, it was so refreshing! She's so interesting.
What do I hear you saying? Why don't you ever compliment me like that? I must laugh, my angel. Despite all your many flaws, I am a loyal husband. You know how I feel about you. I don't need to say a thing.
Do you remember Lucia? I'm going out with her tonight. Oh, what a joyful little sprite she is! Such a delight. Don't wait up, my love.
Your loyal husband,
