Did dad decide?

Did desire die?

Did Debbie's devotion dampen?


Dread drives downward - dizzying.

Dad's drunk.

Decision - discussions dispatches doubt.

Defensive, (no) doubt.

Did dad deplore?

Did detachment develop?

Did Debbie declare: "disappointment"?

Dude, drama.

Downplay it.

Don't display dissatisfaction.

Don't dirge.
