Winner of the quarrel

Daniel saw it coming. The pattern is always the same: someone made a comment, the other disagreed, then an exchange of words, slowly the volume got louder, and it eventually became a shouting match. This time it was over the washing of plates. Daniel is unable to understand how a trivial issue like the washing of plates could lead to a quarrel. In fact, Daniel has lost count of the number of times his parents had quarreled recently over such trivial issues.

 

A truce was called. Dad is now in the living room, watching TV. Mum is in the kitchen, washing dishes. There is an air of uneasiness though the arguing has stopped. Unable to contain his frustration, Daniel bursts out, “DAD! MUM! EACH TIME YOU QUARREL, IT IS SATAN WHO WINS!”
