Forty One Years
December 12, 2006 |
My girlfriend Amy and I broke up on January 22, but stayed close over the months.|
We got back together for a few days in April, split again, tried it again in the
next month, split again, and then again on July 6, and are still bearing each others' company. Within a year we'd broken up five times. It was hard to stay apart...we
went to the same church, hung out with the same people, were in the same small
groups, our mothers were taking exercise classes together and our dogs were dating. Gizmo, of course, was still my constant companion, and my baby was now four. I
pray he'll outlive me.
