43. Cheer Up
“She’s not going to understand,” Felix said. “It’s gonna kill me to hurt her like that.”
Howard, who had been sitting on the steps smoking under the “No Smoking” sign said, “Lemme see the picture.” Felix handed him his phone.
“Damn, kid!” he said. “She’s hot. Don’t beat yourself up about this. She’ll replace you in no time.”
I laughed, and said, “Howard, you suck at cheering people up!”
“You really do,” Felix said with a smile. “But you’re right. She’ll likely find someone. I’m moving on and I have to accept she will too.”
Today I will accept people moving on, sometimes away from me.
