one more dialog prompt

Because this one is too good:

“It got me to thinking. Am I as much a disappointment to him as he is to me?”

This particular prompt gives me shivers. There’s so much buried in those two sentences but at the same time I get a sense of foreboding. As if I were standing in front of a door, curious about what’s on the other side and terrified, too.

I’m not sure why this bit of dialog sounds so ominous to me, but I get the definite sense of something awful about to happen.
