17 Mar



We weren’t so wrong, really.  We were almost right.

Maybe the third dinner would help, but probably not.

I wore sweatpants all year.  I didn’t even notice.

“Some things are obvious” was his “I love you.”

Jillian Denning, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, State of Utah.

“I’m getting divorced,” he said.  “You are?” I said.

It wasn’t everything I dreamed, but what ever was?

“Does everyone have so many bad habits?” I wondered.

    I loved this! And I agree with Cheri, it read like a poem 🙂
    Spotted you over on Belinda’s blog and thought I’d pop on by and say hi. You had me at fiddle-dee-dee.
