[This was written some months back - just decided to share it today.]
Between us hangs Silence. He wants me to apologise - I will not.
He yelled at me yesterday. Perhaps he was justified. "You are luckier than you deserve," I'd said, "lucky that I had put it away." He can’t stand sarcasm, he says.
I needn’t have been sarcastic, I admit it. But he was wrong too. Not because he yelled, but because he did so after I found something he had misplaced two months back.
If you can’t stand sarcasm, say so, but do it before I have wasted precious minutes looking for something that should never have got lost.
