Long Married Couple in Jail

I’ve been guarding evening shifts at the local detention centre every night this week. Detainees have come and gone, but one man has remained for almost a week awaiting an escort to go south.

We are like a married couple. I know how he likes his coffee, and we watch TV together in the evenings.

“Can I watch the game?” he asked after we settled down side-by-side to an evening of television (there is a thick barrier of glass between us).

“Yeah, OK,” I told him, sighing heavily. “But at 9:00 I am watching my Christmas movie!”

We’ve worked things out.
