The Day I Met Her

Jack says, “The thing about the location is you don’t have to love it. In fact, you hardly have to like it, because marriage is more than eighty pound a head venues or perfect backdrops for photos. All that matters is the moment you say what you should’ve years ago.”

I agree. “The whole thing’s private or should be. I cry at Taylor Swift songs, at The Office, at Dragon’s Den so I hardly need nudging. And the last thing I want’s a performance.”

We play hard to get with other people’s words. We shut down, pretend we’re listening, when really we’re picking TV shows for inspiration and wondering boat or hotel? Or if to just fake it altogether.
