“This isn’t a courtroom, Barry,” Melinda told him as she took the chicken out of the oven. ”All I asked was for you to kill that spider.”
“Yes, but there was no need for such a fracas in the middle of the night. It could have waited until morning.”
Melinda rolled her eyes. ”It was dangling over the toilet, Barry! And I needed to go. Plus, it’s creepy to let it stay there, hanging around to pounce on us.”
“Objection!” Barry yelled. ”Spiders do not pounce. And in the zenith of your frenzy, you called the fire department, which I find highly inappropriate.”
“I don’t need your seal of approval to protect myself from nasty creatures,” Melinda replied as she stirred the veggies. ”You know how I feel about spiders.”
