Are we guilty of this?

A Nag? Me?

by Gail Denham

Watch out for that telephone post.
You missed the turn. This isn't the street. You're the most

uncoordinated driver I ever saw.
One of these days, you'll have the law

on you. You can't even steer straight.
Be careful. That truck has boards out the tail gate.

Remember when you crashed, cuz' you didn't stop?
I tell you, your behavior's over the top.

Stop frowning. I'm telling you for your own good.
Oops. I don't think you closed the hood.

What you.... You're letting me out here?
We're a mile from Mom's. Can't get out here.

Who you calling a nag, a burden, an expendable
appliance who oughta' be replaced by a dependable

robot; one that has an off switch.
I'm one you probably feel rhymes with witch?

I won't put up with that kind of talk.
Drive away, leave me. Even with bad knees, I'll walk.

And stop smiling, you louse.
Just wait till we get back to our house.
