“…in love!” continues Peggy.
“You hear that, Millie?” says Al. “I’m so old and decrepit, I’ve forgotten how it feels to want somebody!”
“Peggy didn’t mean that,” says Millie. “Did you, darling?”
“No,” says Peggy. “I don’t know what I do mean. It’s just that everything has always been so perfect for you. You loved each other and you got married in a big church and you had a honeymoon in the South of France. You never had any trouble of any kind! So how can you possibly understand how it is with Fred and me?”
“We never had any trouble?” says Millie. She smiles at Al. “How many times have I told you I hated you and believed it in my heart? How many times have you said you were sick of me, that we were all washed up?”
