“That Alex is a real live wire, don’t you think?” Alyse asked her husband on their way home from the party.
“Oh you’re just jealous of Alex’s energy and charisma,” Alyse said. “You’re so conservative and sometimes you can be like a stick in the mud.”
“That’s pretty brutal, Alyse,” Sean said. “Yeah, I’m a laidback, easygoing guy, but that guy Alex is so full of himself and I find that to be incredibly annoying.”
“I call ‘em as I see ‘em, Alyse,” Sean said.
“And sometimes you see ‘em wrong,” Alyse said. “But in this case, I have to admit, you’re probably right about Alex. And I like your laidback, easygoing nature.”
