Marriage 701, Lecture 12: The sound of silence

Me: Oh! This is it! Listen!

It doesn’t help that Romain is so talkative first thing in the morning that I often check his back, to see if I can take the batteries out. I need at least thirty minutes, minimum, to adjust to the new day – preferably without any commentary.

SH: What! You've already been up for an hour and a half! You had 90 minutes without me!

Me: Yes, but I still want you to be quiet.

SH: Why?

Me: You talk too much.

SH: You didn't used to tell me to be quiet!

Me:  You didn't used to talk so much.
