We just broke down. I don’t know if it was any one thing. Somewhere along the line we just started seeing less and less of each other. There were always excuses… car repairs, appliance replacement, new cars, and vacations. Sure, it wasn’t just the big things. There were everyday things that kept us apart too. Day care, utility bills, insurance, high speed internet access, mortgage payments, cell phones … there seemed to be no end. One thing after another was keeping us apart. How can a relationship last like that?
I guess it was a big one that finally tipped the scalles. The air conditioner started blowing warm air, and it was the final straw. George, Abe, Alex… they all just got up and left. I don’t know if we’ll ever see each other again.
