Love Story

Day 1

It started with sidelong glances at the meat counter. I bought sausages; she bought liver. “Fancy a mixed grill?” I said.

Week 1

It was the way we completed. … each other’s … sentences. It was the way we completed … each other.

Month 1

“Do you love me?” I said. “Love means never needing to say I love you,” she said. “Yes, but do you love me?” I said.

Year 1

When I called to collect my things, my Boba Fett figurine had been smashed into several pieces. “You can glue it together or something, can’t you?” she said.

Meet Your Uncles

Look kid. Daddy’s never coming back, okay? He joined the circus or something. Now if you don’t mind, “Top Chef” is on.

I know you miss Daddy, Sweetie, but save the tears for Dr. Carter. I’m not very good with the emotional stuff.

I do want to spend time with you, darling. It’s just that mommy needs time with her boyfriends, too.

The baby sitter’s name? Tiffany? Emily? Ashley? Does it matter?
