Week #8: Headlines

“Have you read the newspaper stories about my wife?”

“Hmmm. I think I might have.”

“You might have? You might have??? You should have! You couldn’t have missed it!”

“Okay, okay, I haven’t read anything. Tell me what the stories are about. Did she kill someone? Did she rob a bank?”

“I don’t think that’s funny.”

“Okay, tell me.”

“Her invention has been recognized by the United Nations! How could you have missed that???”

“Ooooh. What invention? The one with the cloth?”

“Yes! That one! Her water-purifying cloth!”

“Wow. So it really works, huh?”

“Of course! This is Criselda we’re talking about!”

“Well, forgive me for the bank robbery remarks. Congratulations. You have one fine woman there.”

“Thank you. I sure have. I sure have.”
