“Sorry, honey, but I’m just not in the mood right now,” James told his wife.
“You never seem to be in the mood anymore,” Carolyn said, her eyes tearing up. “Don’t you love me anymore?”
“Of course I love you,” James reassured her. “But I just don’t feel like it right now.”
“You never seem to be in the mood these days.”
“What are you talking about?” James asked. “We’ve done it three time in the past ten days.”
“You’re keeping count?” Carolyn said indignantly.
“No, I’m not keeping count, but I think we’ve been doing it too often lately.”
Carolyn glared at her husband. “Too often? Really? We used to do it much more often when we were first married. You were never not in the mood back then.”
Knowing he couldn’t win this, James relented. “Okay, fine,” he said, “Get your coat and we’ll head to Denny’s for dinner and then go see the movie.”
Carolyn beamed. “See,” she said. “I always know how to get you in the mood.”
