Sketches – 15

(Hey — are you asleep?)


(Have) –– I mean, have you seen my car keys?

You’re kidding, right?

No, I —
Did you fall asleep looking at your phone?

Anyway, I can’t find them anywhere

Where all have you looked?

So far? Ummm —
On the dresser

If I was to strangle you right now,
No jury would ever convict me
At least, no jury of my peers, i.e.,
Other wives

You have no peer, my love

Save it for someone you
Didn’t wake up out of a sound sleep…
Check your pants pocket from yesterday
In the hamper in the bathroom

Found them!

Yes, dear, YOU found them

Thanks love
What were looking at on your phone
When you feel alseep?

I was adding “likes to sleep in”
To my Tinder profile

You wouldn’t want anyone else —
No one else would be nearly as annoying as me

This is me, not arguing

  1. LOL (and a bit of a grrrrr!)
    Reminds me of one of my favorite cartoons (funnier when you can see the artwork):
    Wife in the living room, voice coming from husband in the kitchen,
    “Honey? . . . where do we keep the water?”
    Pah dump dum!

    1. Yes, husbands are notorious for having “visual closure” issues. On top of that, I failed my “eptness” training, and am generally inept.
