It's probably a bad indicator of your lifestyle when you miss your ex-boyfriend because he's absolutely lethal.
Eric moved the broom experimentally and made an attempt to sweep the glass into the pan while it lay in the middle of the floor. Of course, the pan slid away. Eric scowled. I'd finally found something Eric did poorly.
And by golly, love sure was a battlefield. Benatar was right about that.
