#FOWC — To the Moon, Alice

“What is the possibility that we can reach an arrangement?” Alice asked her husband.

“By ‘arrangement,’ you mean that you want me to do something to placate you, don’t you, Alice?” Ralph said.

“Well, Ralph,” Alice said, “a little give and take is what is required in order to have a successful marriage.”

“I’m out driving a city bus twelve hours a day, Alice,” Ralph said, “and you’re talking about give and take? Sounds like you want me to do all the giving with you doing all the taking.”

“Well, Ralph,” Alice said, “happy wife, happy life.”

DAFEF382-1C32-4A72-89DF-1495B71A389FRalph looked straight at his wife, raised a clenched fist, and said, “One of these days, straight to the moon, Alice.”

“Oh Ralph,” Alice said, “you’re the greatest.”

    I never did like the Honeymooners, but I did love the Flintstones that was based on it.

      It’s a classic American sitcom from the mid 50s.

        I will give it a go I think, though I haven’t before. I do like a good prompt.😊
