Love of My Life

A few days ago, I talked to an ex-boyfriend on the phone. It had been at least 20 years since we’d seen each other, and I was curious to catch up. The conversation was easy, almost like we picked up where we left off. He’s married now, and I knew eventually I’d be asked about my relationship status. “I live with a dog,” I said. “And I’m madly in love with her.”

    Today, it happened again. Someone I hadn’t spoken to in 15 years asked me about my love life. Glad I was ready with an answer.
