I invited him to come. I did.

Yeah?

I begged him. Pleaded.

Did he come?

Someone else came, Hamlet came.

What?! How could you stand it?



Have you even spoken to him since?

Yes. He was there the whole time. He even let Hamlet in.

They were here at the same time?





You know those parents we always thought we were jealous for when we were young? The ones who give their kids money but never spent time or gave hugs or read books aloud? I think it's like that.

But you said nothing?

uh. Yeah. When the time came I said nothing.

Odd.

Everything had been said, really.
