Last night. Lights out.
Caitlin: Would you go back to high school? Did you have insecurities as a teenager?
Scott: Hm, no, not really.
Caitlin: Really? That’s lucky.
Scott: Let’s just go to sleep.
Caitlin: Do you have a plan for this weekend?
Scott: Not really.
Caitlin: Oh…are you worried about that?
Caitlin: But it’s my birthday weekend.
Caitlin: Ok, fine, what should we talk about? You pick the topic.
Scott: <heavy sigh>
Caitlin: So…are you saying you don’t want to do a bedtime interview?
He reaches over and strokes my neck. Then I feel him apply pressure on the back of my neck with his thumb.
Caitlin: What are you doing?
Scott: Trying to do that thing “Kevin” does in Little Fockers where he puts that kid in a sleep hold.
Caitlin: Ok, well, it’s not working. But feel free to rub my neck as we talk.
