Well, You Married Her


A big girl, strong, quick-tempered at the best of times and apt to throw punches if she didn’t like what you said. Before we were married, I used to think this was cute. Now it’s just embarrassing, especially showing up at the office next day with a busted lip or a shiner. It was always worse when she drank.

We were in the car when I must’ve said something,  just driving along when pow, the right side of my face exploded. She’d hit me with her shoe. I finally got it away from her and chucked it out the window.

  1. You’ve shown well that not only are women abused but so are men. Probably less heard of because men don’t chat the way women do and they have to keep up their manly image. I don’t know why he married her. I don’t think I’d ever find a left hook to the face cute.
