Non Stop Chatter

A naked girl is standing, speaking endlessly to a naked man kneeling and embracing her belly, later lying supine at her feet. She says, “My life is empty… it is a mockery… I am nothing — just a facade — a shell… a dead and useless thing! I am twenty-six years old… and I have never had a meaningful relationship… never had a truly meaningful relationship…. I should not even admit that, I suppose. It is very humiliating! I have passed from one shallow sexual episode to another. That’s the story of my entire life… one tawdry, shallow, clutching incident after another. My relationships have no deep, lasting significance — if I could just ONCE lie down and have something meaningful happen!”

The man replies, from the floor, “Have you  ever tried talking less… and lying down SOONER?”
