Birthday Answers

(For my birthday, I asked for Ask Me Anything Questions. I got so many wonderful ones. I'm answering them in entries from here until I get to the end. If you think of something you want to ask, just leave a comment or a note. Deadline is totally not a thing.)

laciann asks:

* What quality did your ex-husband have that caused you to fall in love with him?

That’s a trick question, I think. He was a nice guy and a good writer. I’m pretty sure, however, I never fell in love with him. I fell in like. We wanted to live together for financial reasons mostly. He refused to ‘live in sin’ because his parents would be too disappointed in him. (He was 52 fucking years old forcryingoutload. One of many red flags that I ignored.) Also we had this bakery in town that made the best wedding cake. I should have bought the cake and skipped the wedding.

I clearly put zero thought into the whole thing. It was not my best move by a long shot. I knew within hours of our wedding that I had made a terrible mistake. To this day, I cannot fathom why in the world I did that.

What a negative spin I put on such a positive question! yikes.
