65: Opposition

If I ask her again what she said she sometimes insists she said nothing, when nothing is not what I didn’t hear. Whether I need to show I care or am merely willing to antagonize her to satisfy my curiosity, a little thing like this can be worth fighting over. I’d be glad for her to tell me anything, but not knowing what she doesn’t say is worse than anything. If one party in a divorce claims irreconcilable differences, the other party may agree or disagree— it doesn’t matter, this is only one side of one story.
