Coming in Thursday’s Party of One

You’ll have to pardon me if I seem a little rushed, I’ve been living as a temporarily bachelor. Kate had a last-minute opportunity to go home and see her family for Easter and she took it.

So for six days I was on my own, which was fine, up until the day she came home and I had to, umm, hide … no “adjust” the apartment for her arrival.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Kate and I adore spending time with her, but there are things that she doesn’t like to do that I do and her being away gives me the opportunity to do them.

They are not big things, it’s little stuff like watching a “South Park” marathon, ordering a pizza with mounds of meat on it (she’s a cheese-only girl) or not shaving for six days.
