Elaine can’t help it. She’s still jealous of her handsome husband, even after more than fifty years of happy, infidelity-free marriage. When she looks at him, she still sees the boy who charmed all the girls in high school, then college; the brave soldier who fought a good war. Despite being old, half-blind, and walking with a cane, he still attracts girls’ attention. If Elaine leaves him in a bench in the mall, when she returns from shopping, he’s usually surrounded by girls laughing at his jokes. Elaine informs him he’s tired (he isn’t), and carries him off. Her prize.
