It was enough to make his blood boil! And he considered himself mild-mannered!
"Umm... that I was having fun?"
Archie rolled his eyes. "Emily, life isn't always fun! You have to be serious!"
"Why?" she cried. "Why do you have to take everything so seriously?!"
"If I didn't, who would pay the mortgage, pay the bills, do the grocery shopping, taking care of Neil & Irving? You? HA!" Breaking off, he sighed. "Nevermind. I don't want to talk about it."
"Come on, let's have a date night!" Emily conjoled him.
"I don't know, Emily. I have a lot of work to get done tonight."
"Come on, baby, for me? We need to get out together & be together."
Archie sighed, "Oh alright. Let's go."
After that night, things seemed to be going much smoother. Emily helped alittle more around the house & Archie tried to make sure he set aside time for Emily every night. It was amazing what a little compromise could do!
