My Love was out of the country in meetings last fall.
I called her repeatedly over the course of half an hour, interspersed with texts, asking her to call me.
Finally, she returned my call.
My Love (extremely exasperated): This better be important. I’m in the middle of a critical meeting here.
Me: A federal court just threw out the same-sex marriage ban in [our state].
Me: Did you hear me? We can get married at home.
Voice in the background: Is everything all right?
My Love: I’m just going to go over here in the corner and dance and cry for a few minutes, OK?
