After two large glasses of red wine

and an evening of jokes,

his arm around her in a dark booth,

he casually sighed, “Well,

that’s one more capsule

we can add to our health store list”


“Meaning?” she asked


“Laughter,” he said


“Not love?” she pouted,

crossing her arms under her breasts


“Oh, sure, love, of course

Laughter, 500 milligrams”
