The Routine

Jamie loved his wife dearly but he thought she was a bit fussy: always checking that the windows were closed, the oven and iron were off, and no faucets were dripping before they went anywhere. He waited for her to complete her routine each time they left the apartment.

While Mona was visiting her sister, Jamie prepared his meals, ironed his own shirts, left the bed unmade. He made a point of leaving the apartment without performing Mona’s exit routine, congratulating himself for being the reasonable one.

The way Jamie remembered it, he hadn’t left anything cooking on the stove.
