When we first met, you couldn’t even knot your tie straight. You’d never tried an oyster. Personally not much of a loss. Been to the theatre. Read Woolf or Wilde. I did that. It’s what you do for someone when you believe in them.
You know, really, darling, you are not getting any younger. Surprise me. Buy a bottle of wine, drink yourself silly and dance all night with some inappropriate man like you used to. It’s much better than staying in with a good book. Me? I’m old. I’ve made my mistakes. But you, too pretty. Don’t let it go to waste. Run away for too long and they stop loving you back.
