On This Day

27 Dec

I would be celebrating the birth of my ex-husband. If we were still married.

He keeps a running list of things he wants in his wallet, so I would pick something from the list and wrap it in birthday paper – never Christmas. I liked to make a clamor for his birthday. One year, I bought a keg of rootbeer and 12 fifths of vanilla vodka, and we invited the world over to have a party. We had sticky floors for months.

I am not sad that I don’t get to celebrate him today. I’m just sad.
