I subscribe to the Ex-Boyfriends R Us newsletter. It’s one of the unforeseen pitfalls of dating people you or people you know actually have things in common with. You might be able to get rid of them, but you can never liberate yourselves from the shared-interest newsletters. From now on, it’s dates from the union of actuarial scientists, sewage reclamation specialists, and embalmers for me.
So, I was sitting at the table, minding my own business and eating a sandwich today. Flipping through a copy of Ex-Boyfriends R Us. (Actually, the newsletter for a charitable group we’re both involved with.) And yup.
Somebody gave him a full page.
Why would anyone do that?!!
Because he’s raising money for the poor starving orphans with sufficient zeal to merit it.
Oh, well, there is that.
Well. All right. Fine. I already knew he was a better person than I am.
Did I mention I’m writing a book?
The thing is… I was pretty happy with the idea that he was happy. Well, you know. That feeling of relief when you see that someone you care about is being taken care of.
He is not being taken care of. He looks miserable. And I’m not crazy about the health-aspect there. (**Fantasizes about thyroid testing and blood sugar.**)
It’s like finding out your dog didn’t really go to live on a farm, and he’s not chasing rabbits.
I should mind my own business. And in the long run, I probably am going to mind my own business.
But I still thought there’d be rabbits.
