I told her I wasn’t really trying to be rude which didn’t seem to satisfy her at all so i said it again, hoping she’d understand!
But she didn’t.
She got mad as hell!
“I hate that Dick … !!” she said. “He’s so goddamn irresponsible!”
I noticed she was looking over my shoulder at the bright lights of the lodge.
I could see that glint she gets in her eyes when she thinks there’s a bar within reach.
“What are you looking at?” i asked.
She said she was sorry she was so mean.
“You weren’t being rude!” she said. “But i still think it’s your fault!”
“Truth of the matter is,” she said, “I wasn’t paying attention to a word you said!”
“I had other things on my mind!”
