Marlene stared across the yard, watching Jimmy John scratch his backside attempting to impress the new girl.
“Why did my parents continue to procreate?”
This question ran through Marlene’s mind as she watched the grin spread across his face for the umpteenth time.
“What in the hell is wrong with that nitwit girl?”

Marlene watched Jimmy John shuffled back to the porch a smile plastered to his face, “Well, sister looks like I got me a fresh one for Friday night.”
“What the hell did you say to this one JJ?”
“The same thing your husband said to you the first time you said yes!”
Jimmy John guffawed and slapped his knee. Marlene thought, “I have to get out of this backward town”.
