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.

    May I just say what a relief to find someone that actually knows what they’re talking
    about on the web. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light
    and make it important. More people have to read this
    and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you
    are not more popular since you definitely have the gift.
