Twelve Years

December 7, 2008, the kitchen table.

Matt (holding up a library book): I saw your proofreading mark in this.

Me: I -- wha?

Matt: I was reading this book and I found where you had marked it. A library book! Come on!

Me: did you know it was me?

Matt: Oh. I know.

Fade. Happy anniversary.


  1. I'm going to write one of these for something that happened tonight.

  2. I dogear pages of library books that have passages I like. It's an irrepressible urge, or at least I am not even trying to repress it. This makes me a bad citizen, I know.

  3. If I see "your're" in a book, I'm going to do something about it, and no one better get in my way.
