Love and Lies is next story slam. A contribution...

"Ay me! for aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth..."
But our love has had a long run. Somehow, I couldn't resist making this and posting it too. It was our 29th anniversary yesterday and we spent it at church in the morning, where I was the substitute preacher and then Robert had clients to see and I wanted to go to an open comedy mic- something I had never done. It was at The Comedy Kitchen a new venue organized by Liz Appleby. Since I was already video taping for the other performers, I let the camera run while I was on. When I showed this to Robert he laughed and said..."Go ahead, you can let people see it." I went from the serious and sacred words on the pulpit to the profane, in a swift dive. And I didn't need to be pushed.

There are some inaccuracies, in the heat of the moment - he was separated for 2.5 years when we started "going out" and he went to graduate school on more than a whim but that is another story.
