Thursday is Content Day

I came back into the living room with the bottle of tonic and they stood by the fireplace looking at me.

They looked at me a little too long. I just stepped into the kitchen around the corner so it shouldn't have been that big of a surprise.

I guess I wore my doubt with the same smudge Veronica wore her lipstick. Joe raised his arms a little bit with a pathetic sort of bleating.

He stopped right around the third slug from my .38.

Veronica started right in walking over to the coffee table and lighting a cigarette in a huff.

"Jesus, Bill," she said blowing smoke out her nose. "I just had this room done. The carpet cost a mint."

"I can't stand a cheat."

"I can't stand decorators so it looks like we're both in for disappointment."

I opened the tonic. She wasn't going to let up unless there was a drink in her hand. Soldier on.
