Have you ever wondered what its like to live with someone who's mind is rarely ever there with you? If you ever wonder what it's like to live with someone who daydreams constantly or has a secret life, then follow me to the 35th Street Salon where I will interview a woman who lives with a man that leaves her while he daydreams his most wonderful fancies. Today, I will be interviewing the wife of Walter Mitty, or shall I say Captain Mitty. Come with me to learn what this woman thinks and feels like when her husband leaves her to be in his better place.
As I walked into the salon, I saw Mrs. Mitty being pampered by the salon staff, and I thought to myself that it must be great to have a husband like hers. She was kind of short with a bright red, curly hair. Her face looked meaner than the Grinch who stole Christmas. I walked over to her and introduced myself. She seemed as though she was too important to be introduced, as if everyone already knew who she was. I knew that it would be hard for her to talk about someone else and not to talk about herself the whole time. .
I started the interview by asking her what annoys her the most when her husband leaves his present state to be in a daydream. .
She responded by saying, "I get most annoyed when he starts to daydream and leaves me alone while I"m trying to tell him something." .
I expected that her answer would be something to that extent since she is so self-centered. The next question I asked her received a very different response than I expected. .
I asked her why she thinks her husband enjoys daydreaming, and she responded, "To tell you the truth, I really do think that he does it to get away from all my nagging and complaining, and I really feel bad sometimes for being the reason he does it." .
Just as I was surprised that her answer wasn't about her, she changed the subject to be about herself. .
She said, "Why are we talking about my husband so much? I thought this interview was supposed to be about me?" .
