As Vic is on the porch swing, reading the newspaper, Sade enters to comment on the weather, and the aftermath of cleaning up after the evening meal. They notice their neighbor, an eccentric professor, also enjoying the evening on his porch swing.
Sade tells about a fad going around, wives referring to their husbands by their job title. Sounds of distant thunder both threaten damp weather, and a promise of a cool breeze to take the heat off.
Vic tries to tell a story about his boyhood, but Sade isn’t finished telling about all the wives, and their pet names for their husbands. What did Sade use to refer to Vic among the ladies? The Chief? The Big Dipper? Oh ish! The lazy conversation takes a backseat to the increasing thunder and lightening, and the excited comments from Vic and Sade as theywait for the rain to start.
The Gooks stay outside as long as possible, but anticipate an enjoyable dash to safety at the last moments before the cloudburst opens up to drench them. Tempting nature.
