The following is an excerpt from my memoir.

Mostly, I spoke to Dick like this because I was impressed by the insanity of his answers and I wanted to hear him repeat them.

I preferred wine.

About a month into our new living arrangement – the one where I moved in with him at his house – I decided Dick needed to make some changes. For all the wine I drank before he got in from work, I was never drunk enough to muster the patience to listen to him complain about his job, which he did, without fail, every miserable night.
