Marriage 301, Lecture 336: Any port in a storm

SH: I should have gone to visit Pete [our mutual friend] when he lived in Cincinnati [late 80s] so we could have met then. [I was living in Cincy at the same time.]

Me: We'd be $X richer [for not paying alimony.] But I might not have liked you.

SH: Why not?

Me: I was not a big fan of burping and fart jokes.

SH: I wasn't some drunken frat boy!

Me: Or of Beavis and Butthead imitations.

SH: But you are now?

Me: No, but I have a higher tolerance level. I overlook more.

SH: Maybe you're just more desperate.

Me: Yep. I dropped my standards.
