SWAY

This conversation still plays in my mind and I am hoping by writing it out, it will stop.

  • Why did you threaten your wife?
  • She likes to dance.
  • So?
  • So we went dancing.
  • So?
  • So she was dancing.
  • And?
  • Well, she was swaying.
  • Swaying?
  • You know, swaying to the music.  Swaying.
  • So what?
  • So I didn’t like it.
  • You didn’t like the music?
  • No.  I don’t like her to sway and – men were watching.
  • Well, you are still not allowed to chase her around with a weapon.
  • Yeah, but I really didn’t like it.  She was swaying, really swaying, you know?  I got really angry about it!  I lost my head!
  • Well, maybe next time, you should stay home and play chess.
  • I don’t know how to play chess.
  • Time to learn.  Time to learn.
