    The Story of Your Red Right Ankle

    "Marriage is boring," Ben agreed with a nod. He really did believe that in every possible connotation. The institution was boring, and the types of people who longed for it were by and large boring people. It even tended to make otherwise interesting and fun individuals much less so when inflicted upon them; Art may have been his closest friend, but Ben could acknowledge (at least privately) that he had become less fun by virtue of having acquired a wife.

    "I do hope that most potential aurors aren't debating it over the same man, though," he joked. "I think most criminals would probably take a wedding over a jail cell no matter who was on the other side of the altar."

    The one upside of marriage was that it involved, at least as far as Ben knew, regular and routine access to sex; but since procuring that particular pleasure hadn't been an issue for him in the past, he wasn't willing to cede any of his freedom in exchange for it.
