He said he was taking my clothes out to “Shake some sun into them,” and I thought that was sweet, but how long does it take to shake the smell of our love out of a dress, and it’s getting cold in here. Wait, is that him, running up and down the street, laughing? It is, and what—oh, God—is he wearing my dress? Jesus Christ, I sure can pick them.

    I love your writing style. It’s reminiscent to that of Woody Allen. The mood of the story, and the feel of it reminds of a Woody Allen novie I saw a year or two ago on television starring Barbara Streisand and George Siegel. Like this film mentioned here, your story is phenomenal.
