Thank you. I rushed it up there. I've actually been proofreading after I posted it for the last 10 minutes. Just great stuff.
You know what I find odd, is that Mike really only "kinda" stuck up for her. Generally speaking, and this is harking back to my non-girlfriend days anytime I was "scoring" with some girl. Even if I thought she was in the wrong I would generally stick up for her with all guns blazing in an effort to avoid getting "shut out" if you will. His silence speaks volumes.
