|"Gladys, what do you mean you want to be more open?"
"Mildred, you've known me for 25 years, but there are things about me you don't even know. When I told Harvey I wanted our marriage to be open, he come to life - clicked the remote, smiled and shook his head,"
"Don't you know what that means, Gladys?"
"I guess not, when I told him about hiding my feelings, like the time he played golf when I had Matthew, he clammed up, punched the remote, went right back to that golf tournament."
"Well, I think it would be good for you to say what you feel and understand about open marriage. What are you gonna do?"
"I'm going to a "Woman Empowerment Seminar." Classes on how to get what you want and there's one titled: "Leverage, Woman's Best Friend."
"I can't wait, Gladys, tell me all about the seminar."
"Worth every penny, Mildred, especially the Leverage Class. Tonight my husband will talk and be happy to do it. I can't wait to see his face when I open the envelope - 8x10's of Harvey and his secretary."/size} 186 Words
