Pensieri, Voi Mi Tormentate

Loretta's fanatical desire to appear cultured compels her to subscribe to season tickets for a fancy loge box in the Met, in spite of the Lockhorns' ongoing financial woes, most of which are caused by Loretta's irresponsible shopping binges in the first place. She is also thus compelled to drag Leroy along, quite against his will, to the opera, as well as to other artistic venues which he detests. As if to rub salt in the wound, she will also nag Leroy incessantly into driving faster to the opera, to the inevitable point when Leroy gets pulled over for speeding.

He gets yet another reason to grouse and grumble all evening. He is happy now.

Wings: I can see that. He's very good at it. He knows it will annoy Loretta and help spoil her evening. And, it gives him something constructive to do.
