I was sitting with two people from my high school, and one of them had been on my soccer team; her and I got along so well and used to joke that we were married.
"We have a great open marriage still," I joked to the other person with us, "it’s kind of like… we NEVER talk, have no intimacy whatsoever, but when we do see each other it’s REALLY awesome, and that’s how marriage should be, right?"
They both started laughing and I said,
"it’s sad because that’s actually how all my relationships go. Never talk, barely do anything together, then when you do hang out with them like once a month, you’re thinking, wow this person is awesome!"
They laughed harder, and I said “no, the sad part is I’m not even really kidding” and they laughed even harder and I mumbled “not kidding though, seriously…” while they just continued to laugh and I let a crooked, confused smile curve and collapse on my face before quickly finishing the rest of my beer.
My life always feels like a weird sitcom — one that nobody would watch
