...Audrey had approached her husband, Grey, in the kitchen of their Ludington Lane house to say that she planned to marry Ted. She realized that "something was lacking" in their marriage; she considered Grey self-sufficient, she told him, "but Ted needs me." The cardiologist had stood silent for a moment as though he were thinking all this over.
"Who," he asked finally, "is going to do the driving?"
"Why, I guess I will," Audrey replied, astonished.
"Good," he said. "I don't want any wife of mine marrying a man who drives the way Ted does."
