Jayne Martin, my sister in spirit, issued a fun challenge called He Said/She Said. Read the conversation below and then read it between the lines. What’s not being said? Comment below and then, if you’d like, write one of your own and link it to Jayne’s blog.
He said: Oh you’ll be here, don’t worry
She said: No I won’t, not my style.
He said: All the ladies end up here, believe me, after 34 years, I know.
She said: They come for your company. I don’t find you all that charming.
He said: Takes one to know one.
She said: I lied. You’re very charming.
He said: I know. Just like I know you’ll be here.
She said: I can’t imagine how that would happen.
He said: I’ll bet you’re already down to once every other day, right? You don’t need it every day like you used to.
She said: How did you know? I just started cutting back!
He said: Joe knows, honey. I’ve been around.
She said: Still, I can’t imagine coming once a week. That’s a long ways off.
He said: I have one spot left-Saturdays at 2:15 PM. Ellie died. Remember Ellie? You should grab it.
She said: I’m not grabbing Ellie’s spot. I don’t need it.
He said: Maybe not now, but you will. You will. And then it will be gone. Might be years before another spot opens up.
She said: I’ll take my chances.
He said: Okay, it’s your hair.
She said: And you just love to have your way with it, don’t you?
He said: Pretty soon I’ll be having my way with it once a week.
She said: No you won’t.
He said: Oh yes I will. Joe knows, Honey.
