The trauma of separation

posted 05/26/08

Mise en place: SH is going through boxes of his college books and notes. (He and I went to the same college and graduated the same year.)

Me: Why don’t you put those yearbooks in the trash?

SH: But it’s the Campaniles! I can’t throw away my Campaniles!

Me: But I have copies and mine are in better shape.

SH: Why wouldn’t we want two copies? I think it would be kind of cool.

Me: Well, sure, if we are going to get divorced in a few years. Then we can each have our own copies again when we divide our assets. But I’m confident enough about this relationship that I think we can have just one copy.
