David: Better Or Worse

I knocked on the door to my own home. “Honey? Are you here?” I called out.

I stood patiently, listening to a series of chains being unlinked, deadbolts being opened, and swing arms being swung. Finally, after I heard a chair dragged across the hardwood floor, my door opened a crack.

“Are you alone?” she asked me.

I sighed. “What happened this time? Did the mailman scare you again?”

“Say the safe word.”

I rolled my eyes. “’Magnolia.’” The door slammed shut. “Crap. Is it Thursday? ‘Honeysuckle Rose.’ Sweetie?”

I got out my cell phone and speed dialed the locksmith.
