Jonathon sat in his favorite chair, feet up and television blaring. "Honey, bring me a beer," he called to his wife.
"Next time, get it yourself," she chided as she handed him the can. Of course, she knew nothing would pull him away from the football game. Once the game started, the roof could fall in around him and he wouldn't notice. He couldn't even look up to take his beer. She had to put it in his hand. "I'm going to see my sister. You're going to have to make that beer last, or get your own," Susan said as she walked out the door.
Jonathon had just gotten back into the game when he heard a knock on the door. "Susan," he yelled. "Answer the door!" The knock sounded again.
"Suuu..son!" he yelled.
Whoever was at the door was not going to give up. The commercial came on, and he remembered she said she was going to see her sister. The knock sounded again, and he reluctantly got up and stormed to the door.
