“The saddest story I ever heard was about two mimes who got married,” my friend said. “They went their whole lives without saying a word. How depressing, right?”
I thought it over. “But they stayed true to the code, man,” I answered. “It’s a fine love story.”
“Are you nuts?”
“Look, my girlfriend talks too much. It’s mind-numbing. She’s best when her mouth’s closed.”
“Then you ain’t with the right girl, bro. Get with a mime, why don’t ya?”
That’s when I decided to see a mime.
Spoiler alert: she talked. A lot.
So we divorced.
Talk about a sad story.
