The Happy Couple

“I’ve got a bone to pick with you,” Harriet said to her husband.

“What’s new?” Dick said. “You always find something to criticize me about. What petty little thing is it this time?”

“This is not some inconsequential gripe,” Harriet said. “Frankly, Dick, I think our marriage is going down the drain.

“Yeah, well you’re no prize yourself, Harriet,” Dick said, emphatically.

“Fine,” Harriet said, throwing her arms into the air in a gesture of resignation. “Then let’s go to the bedroom and screw our brains out. That’s about the only thing you’re actually good for, you know.”
