My Love Note:

I will find my future ex-husband at the El Bar. 
 
He will be sitting at the end of the bar close to the door that says “no liquor in the backyard.” He will buy me a special. We will be going to the same show at KFN in an hour, but we will have both concluded that it’s more economical to sip here first. 

He will be a part-time musician. A feral cat will walk by in the bar and we’ll talk about that. We will pretend it doesn’t smell like week-old BO in here. We will order a second round before we walk the block to the show, where we will stand next to each other drinking something off of KFN’s $2 Wall of Shame, not talking, just listening. 

We will be the last ones to leave the venue, smoking cigarettes upstairs in the apartment/kitchen. At the end of the night, he will have my number but I won’t take his.

At our wedding, PBR will flow like champagne. Jim Beam shots, too.
