Arms outstretched like a superhero, there was my Doug preparing to bungee jump. Seems it wasn’t all work at that conference. I hit the reply button, and my phone offered “how fun!” as an instant response. Though ungrammatical, I accepted.
Doug’s next message came. “Having a great time apart.”
“Real class,” I typed, “dumping me over the phone. Whatever. I’ve been wanting you out of my life anyhow.”
There followed a long pause. Then “Screw you. That was autocorrect. Meant to type at Pat’s, not apart. I’ll collect my things next week.”
