“It’s always the same isn’t it when we go out,” she said.

“What’s always the same?” he replied sipping his coffee.

“The way you order. It’s always the large size for you and small for me.”

“It isn’t. You are exaggerating.”

“No, I’m not, it’s true. We go for coffee and look, you order a large for yourself and small for me.”

“But you always say you don’t want too much. So, I’m looking out for you.”

“Well, I’m just saying you do this without ever asking me if I feel like a larger size or not.”

“Well in future I’ll ask then.”

“It’s manners don’t you think?”

“Are you saying I’m impolite?”

“Sometimes you just don’t think.”

“That’s insulting, I do think and I think about you all the time.”

“Well that’s the issue, isn’t it. You think about me but never ask me.”

“Oh, for goodness sake, lunch is here now eat up, I ordered you the chopped liver.”
