On marriage

Three years after the divorce, she asked her father :“Don’t you ever miss mom?” He looked at her, surprised at the mention of his wife of 23 years. “I’ve never really thought about it”.

On love

“You are important” he said. “I think you are wonderful.” Now he is sleeping with some girl named after a fucking mermaid.

On gifts

At age 9, she was unexpectedly given a red fur coat by her mother. It was the most beautiful, most expensive thing she had ever owned. Only the day after did she discover that the red fur coat was not meant for play.
