The Wrong Answer

image

Jack:
I took too long to answer?
What does that mean?

Mary:
The devil is in the details,  Jack,
I’m not an idiot!
It’s one thing to admit you think
That she or any woman is attractive,
That’s normal,  you’re human.
But it’s something else entirely
When you can’t exercise self control.
If you don’t know where to draw the line
With your playfulness
Then you’re setting yourself up
For problems!

Jack:
What do you mean?

Mary:
Well, a woman who knows
You have a girlfriend
Just put a love note in your pocket.
She’s either a home wrecker by nature
Or was given the impression by you that
a) you’re not happy in your relationship at home or
b) you don’t mind having something extra on the side.

Jack:
Geez Mary,
Why in the world would I do that?
I love you, I value our relationship,
I have no need for anyone else.
I was just playing around!

Mary:
OK Jack, then answer me this,
Does she know you have a girlfriend?

Jack:
Umm, I’m not sure.
It never really came up!

Mary:
WRONG ANSWER, JACK !
That right there is why
She thinks she has a chance!
You’re acting like you’re single
When you’re not.
Why would you do that?
