My husband closes the full screen window, starts looking for something else to watch.
“I don’t think anything like that ever would have happened,” I say in reflection. “I mean, he was violent sometimes, yeah, but he was more just pathetic .”
My husband laughs dryly, without humor. “We just watched, what, four things, about how pathetic men kill their families. I know you don’t want to admit it, and you’ve distanced yourself from it, but you Were just the same as those women.”
