Yo sis –

I did it, like I said I would yesterday. I told you he was too attached.  I’m glad it’s over, I’m  too independent for that. I delivered my prepared speech, told him that he would be better off with someone who appreciated him. He said, “But I want you,” very loudly. It drew attention to us from everyone in the restaurant. The waiter came over at key times and by his presence got Clyve to quiet down a little. He impressed me by demonstrating a great deal of tact. We exchanged phone numbers afterwards. That was the only upside of my misguided strategy to do this in a public place, as it definitely did not avoid a scene. When he started crying, well, you know me, I’m not very empathetic.  I held his hand, and he just kept saying, “but I love you.”

“I know,” I said. I said it with much motherly affection. You would have been proud of me.

Mother –

It’s over between Mindy and me. I know this may come as a shock to you. It was as much a shock to me. She broke if off in the worst way, in a crowded restaurant. She acted like she cared, kept stroking my hand and telling me “I know,” but it didn’t sound at all sincere. I’ve never seen her so nervous like that, darting glances all around the restaurant, as if she cared more about what they thought than how I felt. I would follow her anxious gaze and catch the waiter snickering. Oh it was humiliating. But I don’t know what I am going to do without her.  I love her.  How do I get over Mindy? Mindy, Mindy, Mindy. It hurts me so much just to write the name Mindy.

Dude –

You don’t know the half of it. Tonight she decided to break it off with her boyfriend at my restaurant. Just earlier this afternoon (after our “nooner”) she said she would break up with him and I told her I didn’t believe her. Well, she walks in with the guy and sits in my station. So I try to be particularly attentive to them, in order to hear what’s going on. It wasn’t hard because she waited until I was near enough to drop the bomb. It wasn’t pretty. I didn’t think I’d ever see a grown man cry like that. She seemed taken aback and I found her discomfort amusing. She was so mean and cruel.  I never thought of myself as a romantic, but after she staged all that for me, I can’t wait to see her again. I hope she never makes me cry like that.
