Fall in love. Get married. Stop watching sports. Plan meals a week in advance. Forever waiting for holidays.
Discuss the weather. The good old days. Watch the soaps. Napping by nine. Takeaways on Saturdays. Arguments over cleaning products.
Buy a dog. Forget what your friends look like. Sell all your favourite records. She didn’t like them anyway.
Leave for work earlier. Come home later. Stare at a work colleagues legs. Attend non-existent conferences.
Wake up one day. See her face stuck to the pillow. Dry spit. Realise you are not a cat. You have only one life. Don’t waste it on modern living. You are slowly dying.
Die. Die. Die.
