Having the tough talks

Mental Health
"Look, this is probably not the best time to bring this up, what with us paying a mortgage from a shared bank account and raising six children together and all, but, well..."
 —"Just say it." 
 "I just wonder sometimes, you know, whether we should at least cut back, is all. On the whole 'luring the homeless out behind the shed and turning them into fertilizer for your award-winning garden' thing."
 —"For the kids, you mean."
"I was thinking more in terms of reducing our chances of getting caught, but sure, yeah, do it for the kids. Whatever."
—"I guess...but hey. Remember our first time?"
"You really fought me for that bum's torso. I mean, you must have just wanted it more."
—"That's when I fell in love with you. And watching you clean up the aftermath is when I realized: this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life dismembering bums with."
"You know what? Forget getting caught."
—"Mmmh. Forget the kids."
"I love you so much."
