Meet Rose...


A VIGNETTE FROM 'ROSE' IN THE LIES WE LIVE


      “Well, across the street, up near the main road, I’m pretty sure she’s got a ‘daytime friend’ and a ‘nighttime lover’ situation going on over there.”
     “How do you know?”
     “Well, obviously I don’t know for sure, but her husband works the second shift, and the same truck with the same guy will sometimes come over during the daytime to hang out with the husband – working on cars and drinking beer in the garage – then will leave after a couple of hours.  Give it a few more hours and the husband will leave for work around two-thirty in the afternoon, and then at about five or six o’clock in the evening, here comes that same truck with the same guy, like clockwork.  He’ll go in and hang out with her for a couple hours, but he never stays late enough to see the husband get home at ten-thirty.  I once saw him burst out of the house and run for his truck, crank the engine, throw it in reverse, then speed out of the neighborhood like a bat out of hell, just barely missing the husband getting home by about two or three minutes.  Maybe… he overslept?”
