Doomed Slumping Puddings
"We are all doomed slumping puddings trying to stay hard for as long as we can."
"You've said that before."
"I think it's funny," I said, "also, consoling."
Her eyes flashed. "It's not either of those things," she said. "It's rude."
"Calling people puddings. We're all doing the best we can."
I sat up.
"Babe, you're the one who came in here while I was exercising."
She tucked a strand of dark hair behind her ear.
"I wanted to see what all the grunting was about."
"It's not like it's the first time."
