I consider myself to be a very sensible man. I behave sensibly, I talk sensibly, I dress sensibly. I even espouse a sensible, middle of the road ideology, which is a very sensible position to take in these days of extremity politics.
I was very happy with my sensible ways. But my girlfriend was not too keen over my sensible manner. She said that I was boring and that I needed to be more demonstrative. She said I was too accommodating and needed to show more gumption. She said I was detached and needed to take a stand for things that stirred my passions.
But being the sensible man that I am, I never let anything stir my passions. I don’t allow anything to bedevil my sensible, even keel ways.
So I did the only sensible thing a sensible, dispassionate man like me would do. I shot her.
