You sat in Nero’s the coffee cafe in the high street sipping your cappuccino and there was a guy and dame on the next table talking and as hard as you tried not to listen the conversation crept into your air space invaded your ears and she said I work all day long hours and when I come home all he wants is to have it off with me and the guy said what each day? yes the dame said and I told him I’m tired when I get home it’s not the first thing on my mind when I get it in and what did he say? the guy asked
the dame wore glasses and sipped her coffee and there was coffee foam on her upper lip like a moustache and she wiped it off with a napkin and then she said he said he’d been at work all day too and it was the first thing on his mind when he got home you sipped more of your cappuccino your wife was talking about something she’d seen in a store but it was not her size and you showed the look of understanding and your son was probably thinking of the next football match on TV and the dame said all I want to do when I get home from work is take a bath or shower and unwind the guy nodded
and you supposed he wished he could be there when she took her bath or shower and you looked beyond them at the crowded cafe the various people there trying to push the conversation away but it was still there the guy said what did you tell him then? o him he never listens she said he only hears what he wants to hear the guy leaned forward and she said it gets on my nerves having that to face each day I get in from work you looked at your coffee cup the whiteness of the china the colour of the coffee and the conversation going on and he said it’s so bad that
he needs to back off and the dame said I gave in eventually let him have his way you looked at your wife as she talked of the weather and the threat of snow and you looking at your cell phone thinking it was time to go.
