My wife is a liar.
Oh, I’m sorry, what I meant to say is that my wife is a lawyer, but the two words are so similar that I frequently confuse them, the second being, in my humble layman’s opinion, merely a subset of the first.
When I asked her recently, in the nicest possible way, whether she retained any remnant of humanity in her barren soul, she regarded me clinically through narrowed eyes as though assessing my financial worth, asked if it were a serious question and did I want to make an appointment to discuss the matter further, observing that she was unable to offer any family discount on her exorbitant fees on the basis that, frankly, she just didn’t want to.
I sighed, defeated, and consoled myself with the small comfort that my life, and my wife, could in fact be worse.
She could be two-faced, double-dealing and corrupt, devoid of any ethics, scruples or morals, interested only in money and power, with a psychopathic view of the rest of humanity.
She could be a Tory politician.
