My wife received a salary increase at her work.

Where does she work?

At the accounting firm across town.

Is that by the restaurant with the clown?

What does your wife do?

I haven't a clue!

Why would that be?

She is free.

What do you mean?

She stays home to clean.

We had to hire a cleaning lady.

Did you hire O'Grady?

Yep, but we eat out every night.

Our homemade meals are a delight.

My wife stopped cooking when she started her position.

Before we were married, my wife was a dietitian.

Why doesn't she work out side the home?

Because, she stays home.

    The back-and-forth dialogue reveals different perspectives and decisions made by the characters, adding depth to their relationship, it presents an interesting snapshot of their unique circumstances and the roles they have chosen, thank you very much for sharing, love your works, hope to read more, subscribed.
