Surviving the ups and downs of a long term relationship, married couples go through many stale moments. This is one. A random conversation briefly uncovers these moments, and while not offering any solutions as how to avoid them; it quickly acknowledges them.

Do Dogs Eat Cheese?

"Do dogs eat cheese?"
"I would imagine."
"Just a slice, like us?"
"Yeah, I guess."
I thought the conversation strange, since we never owned a dog, no pets really. Well there was April the rabbit a Easter present, then Tabby the hamster, a birthday present; but they've both been long gone. I wasn't sure how this conversation even got started, then again, I don't ask, I just answer. Logic and emotion have stopped being part of the equation, nobody wanted much more.
A voice, sometimes it's nice to know you weren't alone, connection seemed important.
There would be more strange conversations, things that would just start, never finished. Random thoughts mostly, observations, pieces of trivia, and lots of questions, as if trying to discover everything before it was too late.
Of course our ideas of that exact moment was never discussed, typical. Things just happening not necessarily suddenly, just appearing as if out of thin air.
Not only had our conversations become off, but those connections we seemed to need-contact was often absent.
We could find ourselves next to each other, yet countries apart.
Every now and then, I'd find myself glaring from across the room, sort of mesmerized by his shape sitting at the computer, not really ask, not out loud anyway, was there anyone in there?
