Maybe I'm just not normal enough for romantic relationships. Maybe I'm throwing in the towel. Maybe I belong to the universe as George likes to tease. The bucket of maybes could hold the world.
Me: I dunno, that I've never been in a relationship that's lasted two years straight has to be evidence of something.
Sekou: Or at least exhibit F.
(We laugh. A day later the reality of it is not funny anymore.)
But I'm at peace with myself. And that matters.
