‘This carpet is filthy!’ she exclaims, reaching for vacuum
Aspiring screenwriter Bob Hendrickson, 48, is starting to think his wife Mary might be purposely trying to avoid giving feedback on his teen comedy “Pukeberty,” which he gave her to read in late October.
“It’s been like two months!” said Hendrickson, shouting over the Dirt Devil. “I saw you skimming it over Thanksgiving!”
Mary, who has become abnormally withdrawn ever since Hendrickson asked her to read his third script in as many months, claims to have not yet finished it.
“Maybe sometime this weekend,” she said, now loading the dishwasher. “I’m sure it’s really sad, honey.”
When Hendrickson replied that the script was a comedy, Mary laughed nervously.
“Right, right…I meant funny,” she said, a tear forming in her eye. “There’s nothing sad or pathetic about the script at all. Everything’s just fine with it, I’m sure. Just like our marriage!”
She then stormed out of the room, muttering something about her ex-boyfriend the doctor, who she recently reconnected with on Facebook.
