September 5

She’d written a cutesy email to her husband, who’s out of town on business. “Honey, sweetheart, come back already, I miss you so much…” When she was just about to send it, she got a text from him saying he’d be stuck out there another few days. She left the draft open on her computer, and in the evening when she had me google something it was right there. I read it and started smiling; she asked what was so funny? “Imagination is the greatest superpower,” I laughed, “— for a second there, I could almost pretend this was written to me.” She did NOT look happy about that, and I shut up.
