this morning my lovely and i had a conversation about past friends and relationships that never were but could have been.
she mentioned an old childhood friend who she always wondered what had happened to him and confessed that if she were single, [and he were too] she would have been curious as to whether a relationship would have worked with him or not.
i shared a story of an agreement a friend and i had that if by the time we were 40 we found ourselves to both be single, we’d get married….
the rest of our conversation:
she: “well, you’d have to bump me off first”
me: “she’s married now. i’d have to bump off her husband and explain this all to her daughter. bumping you off would be the easy part.”
needless to say, it gave us both a good laugh for our tuesday morning.
