Some of us were discussing the marvelous wonder that was my birthday cake…
…and then I turned to my ex and asked, “So, have you read the 7th book yet?” (He hadn’t yet when we broke up over a year ago.)
He responded without a hint of remorse: “Nope.”
I sighed, put my hand on his shoulder, and looked him in the eyes. “It would have never worked between us, darling.”
…then we ate the delicious, delicious cake.
(Hey, every relationship needs standards. Harry Potter fanaticism is one of them.)
