“I told you we should have taken the other route.” Catherine glared at him.  “But, as usual, you never listen to me.  I don’t know why I even bother.”

“The tractor will be out of our way soon enough.”

“We wouldn’t be stuck behind it if you’d listened to me.”

“Look, it turned left.  And, we’re still making good time.”

“Why do we have to go to this shindig?”

“The Damores invited us.”

“I suppose their precious daughter is going to be there too.”

“Yes.  Try not to make a scene.”

“I won’t if she stays away from you, Darling.”

  1. I enjoyed the way you constructed your story, with the ‘road rage’, the criticism and the potential love rival all serving to tell us of a marriage on the rocks. I loved your choice of name for their hosts – Damore – what a great name for a potential rival in love!
