I just married my best friend. We ran away to Vegas a month ago, and said "I do" in the Lucky Little Chapel wearing whatever we had thrown into our bags, and toting our 1/2 pound chihuahua along. Two months ago, I had no idea we would be together, let alone married.
Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, so when I saw that they were doing a sitcom together I was over the moon. To say that Iai??i??m impressed with what Marta Kauffman has done with this A-list cast is a gross understatement. Season two has left my jaw on the floor in amazement far more often than season one did, all for good reasons.
We sit across from each other at the table. The restaurant hustle and bustle has faded as we look at each other with saddened, tired eyes. I wonder where the love has gone, we used to be so full of it. Was it the kids, the bills, the routine? What killed our affection, our intimacy? I think I know, though I donai??i??t feel safe to speak of it. Secrets. We have them. Maybe my secret is the destructive one, in fact I know it is. Iai??i??m sure you have secrets too, but if you do, youai??i??ve hid them well. I donai??i??t blame you, my secret has been killing me and also keeping me alive for a long time. Decades in fact.
You love her or you hate her, either way, we all know who she is. Chelsea Handler is a household name across America and even the world: not always in a good way but publicity is publicity, right? Chelsea Handler left E! Network to do her own thing, which included but was not limited to: publishing yet another book, Uganda be Kidding me, doing a stand up tour of said book via Netflix, took a lot of photos of her boobs and made a documentary. All of these things were and still are, amazing.
Thereai??i??s a particularly deafening silence that sets into the room when I mention that my fiancAi?? and I are waiting to have sex until we get married. The conversation either ends or picks right back up, but in a very new direction. (Of course, in religious circles, the conversation is rarely brought up in the first placeai??i??thereai??i??s no deafening silence because thereai??i??s no reason to mention it because of course youai??i??re not having sex with your fiancAi?? before you get a marriage license.)
It takes a brave woman to break her silence. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
