“I’m told my wife is here. ” She has wandered off again. I wonder what she has told these people since she appeared out of nowhere.  Why did she take it upon herself to return my customer’s shoes? I never promised any home delivery. The doctor’s say she’s not quite right in the head. She must be expecting me since she called. Like she’s a freaking member of the family. Probably “putting on air’s” as my father used to say.

“Take a seat. She will be here in a minute.”

I hear footsteps, It must be her.

    She has a problem and he is struggling with it. You depicted his lack of sympathy very well

    Good story depicting a husband struggling to understand what is happening to his wife.

    He doesn’t sound like a loving husband.

    The narrator’s tone sounds so harshly. Makes me wonder what made him, his wife, their lives…
