Make Up The Break Up

, , | Hopeless | June 3, 2016

(The night before my partner of three years abruptly broke up with me. As I work at a very small historic site and we have a big tour planned of a senior citizen center, I have to go into work literally hours after the breakup. After giving the tour and being able to hold myself together, a couple starts asking me questions. I wear a ring on my ring finger because it was a family gift and that’s the only finger it fits on. The couple notices.)

Husband: “Ah, I see; you’re married.”

Me: “Oh, no. It’s just the only place the ring fit.”

Wife: “Did a nice man give that to you?”

Me: “Uh, no. I don’t have one of those I guess.”

Husband: “Oh, don’t worry. You are so smart and pretty; soon guys will be fighting for you.”

Wife: “And with that smile, oh, you’ll have them lining up!”

(Though it was completely unrelated to history, this couple made me feel a bit brighter about the future.)
