A Couched Conversation

“Linda, generalizing your accusations with words like ‘always’ and ‘never’ will not help you work through your disagreements with Larry.”

“Always with this highfalutin garbage, Doc.  You never had to live with him!”

So I probably never told you that I was trained as a Marriage and Family counselor (but always wanted to write).  This 33 word challenge was spawned by the Trifecta folks. The editors there probably thought it’d be hilarious for us all to dispense with our collective “wisdom.” You can take my advice, leave it, or read more here: Trifextra: Week Sixty-Two


      • Right! There was a TV show back in the day, a very harsh drama about life lessons. People and puppets. The harsh lessons were dealt out by the puppets – the theory was if words came from a puppet they were easier to take than from a living breathing person. Nobody can hate a puppet for delivering brutal truths right?

  1. Loved this one. Easy to give advice if you haven’t lived with the problem.
    As far as the whole puppet thing? I might just slap the puppets and the puppeteer.

  2. Hahaha. I have an epigraph to this weekend’s post, from an old Steve Martin routine about advice. ‘Always… no, wait, Never…’ Good one.
