Upstairs in Charee’s birthday villa, whilst playing Cards Against Humanity (there is only so much entertainment to be milked from learning that your friends are just as bigoted and racist as you are), Charee asked a question of Clare and me.

Charee asked, “Which one of you said ‘I love you’ first?”

I looked at Clare, we naturally took each other’s hand, her tiny paw in my giant paw, and after looking at each other in a studious, tender, quizzical way, we kind of came to the same conclusion.

“We don’t know. I guess it was always assumed we were in love already.”

Yep. Since Day One. Over Molina chatter and shitty bowling skills… where nobody told me it was a Dress Day and I was supposed to wear a nice dress to bowling. How embarrassing for me.
