We’d been friends for a long time, but never became a couple. We got drunk a few times and tried to mess around, but we were both control freaks and couldn’t open up enough to go through with it. We never got drunk enough. There was always too much baggage. Friendship at stake.
We planned a romantic date once. We both got all dressed up and went to the fanciest restaurant in town, the same night the Shriners were in town. The food was good there, but not wait two hours good. We wound up the best-dressed people at McDonald’s.
