Irreconcilable Differences

by Linda Courtland

The bald eagle's wife was tired of hearing about Rogaine®. Earlier, she caught him stealing worried glances of white feathers in the rear-view mirror of some tourist's RV. She realized with regret that his dignified profile did not denote wisdom. And now, with his wings spread and the shiny metal cylinder clutched tightly in his talons, he's bringing the problem home. Her husband is not only a narcissist; he's a thief. She will ask for the aerie in the divorce.
