Husbands and Wives: A Drabble
Ryan couldn't believe Colin's verse of the "Ryan's Wife Hoedown". The others had sung
about Ryan's wife, but Colin had come out and said he wanted to *be* Ryan's wife --
-come out' being the operative words! (Not that everyone didn't know already, Ryan
thought.) But how to follow it? What could he say to get a laugh, but let Colin know who
was most important? //How about that having a wife was better than masturbation?//
He'd had a wife for over ten years, but he'd had a husband for twice as long as that.
