We talk for a while and I learn that he just moved here from Los Angeles a couple weeks ago. My ex-boyfriend just moved He talks at length about himself and then asks me: A simple question that I answer (the answer is no) which wouldn’t be notable except it is. We meet at a Caribbean restaurant and because he is on call, he can’t order a drink. The dinner finishes up and he gets a page that he needs to go back to the hospital.
Half out of excitement and half because my apartment is far away and I still have to shower and get ready for our date in less than two hours.

Which means he isn’t really interested in me at all. 17 years later and we still laugh at how he never knew there were two of us…and I was just the lucky one who happened to be working that day.
