Said the old man about the young woman: I think she loves me because she told me things she never told her partner.
Said the mate to the young woman: You must like the old man I just spoke to.
Young woman: I don't mind speaking to him, if that is what you mean. Every time we speak, I tell him all the things I would not tell my husband.
Mate: Why is that?
Young woman: I don't want to annoy him, I reckon. I want us happy all the time. Not sure. They are just unnecessary things, proper for the ears of those who don't have what to do.
Old man to the mate: So, don't you think she loves me?
Mate: It depends on what you think love is, I suppose. I think that if you had what to do, she would not tell you those things that she does not tell her husband.
Old man: You see, he does not give her attention. I knew I was giving her something extra.
Mate: No, it is not that.
Old man: How come? Can only be.
Mate: No, it isn't. Don't you think that a person who loves you would love you regardless of how busy you are?
Old man: Sure.
Mate: Yet, if you are busy, if you have what to do, she won't tell you those things anymore; she will go for the next one that has nothing to do.
Old man: So, I am lucky that I have nothing to do. Is that what you mean? In this way, she loves me.
Mate: Oh, God!
