I found a picture of us today. A real picture, the 4×6 hold-in-your-hand kind, from back when they printed the date in orange on the bottom right-hand corner. ’98 5 16. It’s from when we were Science Fair partners, remember? Your arm’s around my shoulders, and I’m holding our stupid spider plant. Grinning our crooked teeth fifth grade smiles. A picture of ‘us’ before there was an ‘us’. Like a photo of the Titanic before its maiden voyage or something. Ha. I want to call you and tell you about it, but there isn’t an ‘us’ anymore, so I won’t.
