The Last Word, by Emma Baird

Mitch didn’t like most men. That was okay, most men didn’t like him either.
He adored the company of women. Mostly, they found football boring and they liked to listen, their heads cutely tilted to the side as he listed his many woes.
He also found women the ideal sounding board for his officious points of view.
Alice, on the hunt for a new boyfriend since Danny’s cruel demise, tilted her head. Who was this dreadful bore? She smiled politely. Mother said ladies never attempted anything as vulgar as the last word.
She said it anyway. Sex and travel.
