ST. CLOUD, MN—Local resident Paula Sizemore, 29, who has consistently dominated her 28-year-old boyfriend Sam Leach during the entirety of their two years together, told reporters Monday that the couple’s relationship should in no way be considered a power struggle. “The key to success in any loving partnership is communication and mutual respect,” said Sizemore, who routinely ignores Leach when she’s not interested in what he is saying and often mentions his shortcomings in front of the couple’s friends. “With Sam and I, there’s never any petty bickering or one-upmanship. In fact, I don’t think we’ve had an argument in months, not since I made him get rid of that god-awful [1978 Dodge Charger] he was always working on.” At press time, Leach was unavailable for comment, as Sizemore had cut him off before he could speak.
