Me: So, gays and lesbians have had the right to marry in Massachusetts for more than twelve hours. How’s our marriage doing?
Krissy: (Pause) Does the statement beforehand have anything to do with the question?
Me: Well, you know, some people think that gays and lesbians being able to be married threatens marriage. I just wanted to check, you know, to see if our marriage was in danger. Is it?
Krissy: No. Not unless you do something really stupid.
Me: So you’re saying you haven’t felt the waves of threatenation emanating from Massachusetts.
Krissy: I did not feel a ripple. Had I not watched the news or read your Whatever I wouldn’t have even known.
Me: So, what you’re saying is that you still love me.
Krissy: The mostest.
