#FOWC — Estranged Conversation

0C51D22E-E673-4B4B-9769-235C0D87B0A7“Ugh,” Greg muttered under his breath.

“What’s the matter?” Harvey asked.

“I have to go to my lawyer’s office this afternoon for a settlement conference with my estranged wife,” Greg said.

“What’s so strange about her?” Harvey wanted to know.

“Not strange,” Greg answered. “Estranged.”

“Okay, whatever,” Harvey said. “What’s so estranged about her.”

“Do you even know what that word means?” Greg asked. “She’s not estranged, we — she and I — are estranged.”

“I don’t think you’re strange,” Harvey said.

“No, Harvey. Estranged doesn’t mean strange. It means alienated,” Greg explained.

“Your wife is an alien? From Mexico?”

“No, from the planet Krypton,” Greg said sarcastically.

“Isn’t that where Superman is from?” Harvey asked. “Yeah, that would make her a strange alien, all right.”

“I give up,” Greg said. “See you when I get back from the lawyer.”

“That was one the most estranged conversations I’ve ever had,” Harvey said to himself after Greg left.

    I have conversations similar to this at least 3 times a month. I still don’t know whether to laugh or cry

    I wonder what it would be like if Greg tried to explain who is on first to Harvey.
