We Both Over React

A mosquito landed on my hand I swatted at it so hard I have a bruise. Then it flew onto my knee, a sweet land. I tried to shoot it, but here is the bad news. I shot my right leg, damaged my ACL at the knee. Laughing husband man put down the baseball bat. Said arrogantly, “How stupid can you be?” I watched him proceed to burn the house down to kill rat. So you see, now we are homeless and angry at each other. I should have listened to my friend and my silly mother. They both said we were too spontaneous to marry each other. First time either of them were correct. Right, Grandmother?
