Real life verses the movies? How does that go? Let’s see. Whahaha!
Movie Version: Scene: Mother is busy at the kitchen sink. Pots are on the stove and the oven glows red. The sounds of children playing in a distant part of the house are in the background. A sly smile tugs at Father’s mouth, as he sneaks up behind Mother and grabs her in a warm embrace. Mother resists but eventually melts into his arms; she gives Father a cuddle. All is not lost, for in the movies the sink does not run over and food never burns.
Real Life: Scene: After a hard day at work, dealing with a clueless boss and the lazy assistant that the boss hired, Mother is busy at the kitchen sink. Pots are on the stove and the oven glows red. The television blares in the living room, but not loud enough to drown out the sounds of children fighting. A lascivious smile tugs at Father’s mouth, as he sneaks up behind Mother and gives her boobs a painful, double-fisted squeeze. Mother’s hand searches for something at the bottom of the sink, and she whirls around with the carving knife.
Punctuating each word with a sharp jab, Mother says, “Can’t you see that I’m too busy for that, now?” She dices away Father’s kingdom… If only, in her mind.
