Scene- DIY project Sunday. This weekend its replacing ugly mirrored closet doors in our bedrooms. Pushing them out of the house – it takes us both to move them. They are massively tall and weigh about 200 lbs each. Kiddos- Ditto and Dot are playing ‘house’ in sunroom. Huey Lewis & the News’ ‘If this is it’ is on the radio.
Flaca- Sometimes I think we should give in and get divorced and end it all like Huey Lewis says. Are we happy or just avoiding fights?
Green- No. Come on.. What does he say?
Flaca- singing, badly, ” If this is it, I want to know…. If this ain’t love, baby, Just say so… You’ve been thinking, And I’ve been drinking, We both know that it’s, Just not right….”
Green, interrupts, – Oh hell no, come on. No. No one listens to Huey. What does he know? Everyone knows that you listen to the News. You never listen to Huey.
And so we exist. Moving on or moving past? Or just moving so we don’t have to stop and suffer the silence?
