My Old Guy Boyfriend

18 Nov

I’m a girl with a track record for dating old dudes. Checking out Bull: Men’s Fiction, I came across this feeling/laughing/jumping thing written by Ani Smith and enjoyed it enough to bring it to your attention.

There are moments I wasn’t sure if the narrator was making a joke on the old man she hoped to have. The tenderness with which she describes him and their (hypothetical) relationship is enough to let the reader know that if she is making fun, it isn’t malicious. It’s honestly portraying a growing love with a fading life.

Check it out. If you’re into that kind of thing. Or just, you know, read it anyway.
