Your love is better than ice cream
Better than anything else that I've tried
Your love is better than ice cream
Everyone here knows how to fight

Abbey Bartlet woke up in a bad mood. Her right hip chose that morning to hurt as she eased up and out of the bed. She groaned as she hit the screaming alarm clock. She looked over to where her husband was still sleeping, "Jed."

He didn't budge.

Abbey tried again, "Jed."

Again, there was no response from the still form in the bed.

Normally, Abbey would have leaned over and given him a kiss to wake him up... But not that morning. Instead, Abbey grabbed her pillow and landed a solid hit on Jed's head, "Jed!"

Jed Bartlet bolted up out of bed, "What?! Huh?! What's going on?"

"Wake up," Abbey growled at him.

Jed stared at her for a moment, "Abbey..."

Abbey didn't reply, instead she threw her pillow at his head. Jed ducked and watched as his wife stalked into the bathroom.

He waited for a moment and then followed her into the bathroom, "Abigail?"

"What?" came the sharp reply.

"What's wrong with you this morning?" he questioned, walking to the sink.

"Go away," was her reply as she brushed her teeth.

"Abbey." Jed said.

Abbey threw a glare at him and Jed threw up his hands in the air. He watched her as she stalked into the closet. He followed her to the door, "What's wrong with you?"

"Nothing. leave me alone."

"Abbey!" Jed exclaimed. "What did I do?"

Abbey turned to him, "Did you get up this morning?"

"Yeah."

"Well, there you go." Abbey replied, jerking on her clothes. She went to put on her stocking and exclaimed, "Damnit Jed!"

"What did I do?"

"You made me put a run in my stockings," Abbey threw them at his head. "Happy now?"

"How the hell did I do that?"

"I don't know, but you did," was Abbey's reply.

Jed just groaned as he walked away from the closet door.
