#100WW — Behave Yourself


“You need to behave yourself when we go inside, do you understand?” Beth said.

“Are you still bellyaching about my gaffe at the Zenith Grill yesterday?” Danny asked.

“Gaffe? You and I have very different definitions of that word, Danny. What you did was breathtaking, and not in a good way.”

“Oh come on, Beth. You expect me to tiptoe on velvet around you, don’t you?”

“You know, if I were a man I’d belt you one,” Beth said.

“Fine,” Danny said. “I’ll behave myself, Beth. Let’s grab a few beers, some grub, and enjoy the rest of the day.”

    I met My Beloved Sandra (with whom I have blissfully shared nearly 3 decades) at The Valley House Inn (Orleans VT), which (sadly) burned down 12-14 years ago. Fortunately, our romance blazes on, more brightly than ever. I know that I, (like your story’s Danny), must really tic her off fairly regularly, but we’re managing quite well, even all these gaffe-filled ages later.

    I enjoyed this work greatly. My hat’s off!
