Harvey the Married – Part II

  It was hard, fast and everything Harvey needed in that moment. He’d had a stressful morning he told me. Work stuff and he hadn’t come yet that day. “You come every day?” Yes, don’t you? “Um no.” Once in my room, he seemed uneasy, like he wasn’t sure how to proceed.

No need to speed with Top Gun

I didn’t reply to him right away. I saw his response to my ad on Craigslist, along with the 32 others, sitting in my inbox waiting to be read.

In fact, his recent Facebook … Continue reading Real men leave their wives

My greatest teenage fear became my greatest adult grief

As a teenager, the fear of pregnancy was engrained. For all my girlfriends growing up, it was one of our greatest fears and a late period was the cause of plenty of angst. No one wanted a pregnancy at such a young age. It was unfathomable to imagine ourselves as mothers. Several months after the … Continue reading My greatest teenage fear became my greatest adult grief
