“You need to show more patience, Peter,” Florence said.
Peter angrily turned down the volume on his portable radio. “More patience, you say,” he said. “Really, Florence? Well that’s just glorious, isn’t it? Even you, my dear wife, are buying into his bullshit. I can’t believe that you’re gullible enough to incorporate his lies into you consciousness. He and his cronies are trying to burn our country to the ground, to erase all of the progress in human rights and freedom we have made over the past three centuries, and to toss our democracy onto the giant ash heap of failed societies. And you want me to be more patient? When did you lose your way?”
“Peter, darling, what the hell is the matter with you?” Florence asked. “I was talking about waiting for the oven to finish preheating.”
