A text conversation with Sadie…
Me: I have a date with a guy that looks like Lloyd Dobler, after he grew up.
Sadie: Soooo, like Jon Cusack?
Me: No, he’s not all bloated. This is like what we THOUGHT he’d wind up looking like.
Sadie: Well, as I sit here, polishing off my dinner of Honeynut Cheerios, listening to my 3 yr old throw a complete fit, while her father tries to put her to bed… I’m insanely jealous. Have fun. Try not to hum “In Your Eyes” the entire time.
Me: Do you remember when I said that Diane would have gotten to London, woken up, realized he was a loser, and then left him for a college professor, and you argued with me?
Sadie: I’m guessing that conversation came before baby #2. I was a lot more romantic then. If ever a girl had a daddy complex, and would bang a teacher…it was Diane.
Me: If I decide that I don’t like him, and I give him a pen, do you think he’ll get it?
Sadie: If he gets it, you’ll probably like him again.
Me: Fucking irony.
