What did Joe Fox ask Kathleen Kelly? Do you remember?
The night I watched You’ve Got Mail, you called me just
to hear my voice. I remember dangling my feet off the sofa
and listening to you sigh in my ear. If I wasn’t already in love with you,
I would be soon.
When it was summertime and I was in Wyoming,
you wrote me long emails. I turned my computer on every morning,
aching for your deep, hearty laugh.
Instead, I got your ambitious typing.

He had said, “How can you forgive this guy for standing you up
and not forgive me for this tiny little thing …”
But she did, right?
After all, she was in love and he was sorry.
But I didn’t.
And I was really in love.
And you were really sorry.
