MENOPAUSE: C’mon, get up! Please?
ME: Go back to sleep.
MENOPAUSE: Fine, we’ll have to do this the hard way.
ME: No! Wait!

MENOPAUSE: I thought you might be nostalgic for high school.
MENOPAUSE: Are you hungry?
ME: No, why do you ask?

MENOPAUSE: Oh, that’s lactose intolerance. Did I forget to tell you?
ME: Do these pants have pockets? I’m not buying them if they don’t have pockets.
