Melancholy Volley

My husband turned the TV on and a college game appeared.

“Are the 49ers playing tomorrow?”  I asked.


“Who do they play?”

“The Seattle Seahawks.”

“Sounds like a game they’ll lose.” (I just said this to goad him. I don’t watch football and have no idea who is “strong” and who is “weak.”)

“Oh, they’re going to lose all right! The Niners suck…”

“You don’t sound like a very good fan.”

“Just because I’m a fan doesn’t mean I’m stupid.”
