COAL VALLEY, IL—Local man Matt O'Brien isn’t quite sure whether or not he is currently in a fight with his wife. While he is doing just fine, his wife seems to have a chip on her shoulder for some reason. Or maybe she doesn't; O’Brien isn’t sure.
"I can’t think of a reason why she would be mad," O'Brien said. "But she’s acting so strange. Maybe I forgot to feed the kids again, I really don’t know. It could be anything.”
O’Brien says everything was going great until this morning. He said he was thinking about hitting the golf course, and his wife clearly said, "Sure. Whatever. That's fine. Have fun."
"But something seemed off; I don't know."
Since O'Brien returned from golfing, she has given him 22 short answers, 34 dirty looks, and claimed nothing is wrong 45 times. Meanwhile, O’Brien has just been acting normal and being himself, since there’s no way this is a fight.
“How could this be a fight?” O’Brien asked as he casually glanced at the date on his watch. "Oh. Oh no."
