13 years ago on the 14th day of the 2nd month, our 2 bodies --still unafflicted by gravity-- lay next to each other on 1 sagging full sized mattress encased in presumably 80 thread count sheets.

Heart thumping at what felt like 200 beats per minute, I stared up at the ceiling and blurted out 1 leading question that would create enough inertia to propel us through all of space and time.

"What should I say if someone asks if I have a boyfriend?"

And with 2 words and 0 signs of shakiness in your voice, you answered:

"Say 'yes.'"


The divine PB&J in me, salutes the divine PB&J in you.
