A true-to-life dialog between an unsympathetic wife and her sainted, misunderstood spouse.
Her: Why are you pretending to be so grumpy?
Him: Who's pretending?
Her: You. You like to pretend to be a grump. It's a pose you adopt because you think it's funny. You've heard of the Comics Curmudgeon? You're the Husband Curmudgeon.
Him: It's not a pose. I am grumpy.
Her: Save it for the blog, Husband Curmudgeon.
