from Between Gods
I wake in the middle of the night and he’s got me by the throat. He’s playing around of course, don’t get the wrong idea.
“You’re a koala when you sleep. You look like a baby koala,” he says, whisper-breathed.
Groggy, I rub sleep from my eyes and roll on top of him. “What time is it?” I say, kissing his stubbled cheek.
“Who cares!” He grabs my ass.
We’ve only known each other twenty weeks. We moved in together after three.
“Oh Cassie,” my mother said. “You’ll get yourself in a real pickle!”
The first time we had sex I was hit with a bout of hysterical laughing part way through. Maybe it the sounds he made, maybe it was delirious fatigue, maybe it was that I loved him but I didn’t know what to call it, so it came out like laughter.
He started laughing, too. We had to stop, we were laughing so hard. He said my “vagina muscles were strangling his wang,” so I climbed off of him and just kept laughing.

Overheard at Great Dane Coffee
We’ve got time and we’ve got flowers
We’ve got love and we’ve got hours
Let’s make a list! She squeals.
Let’s write down all the items we need for our home to be perfect!
Okay you start! He sees she’s excited.
I can’t! You go. You go!
Okay, he starts, Lights!
Mood lights! Around the bed?
A double sink!!
Oh my god. YES.
To say we’ve made it!
Double sinks scream success!
We’ve made it!
What else, you go!
Oh-a good couch!
One that pulls out for guests!
All the guests in the world will sleep on our perfect pull out couch!
