"Nevertheless, my impossible expectations kept rejuvenating like trick birthday candles, ex nihilo, so rather than giving up I would instead be irrationally inspired to make another desperate plea on the wishful off chance that maybe this time he would conform his entire life around my neurosis."

"It was the truth, but he still didn’t look sold on my account. I might have deemed his little intervention as a bit on the ostentatious side, but given my antics from earlier that afternoon, he could have basically galloped in dressed as a centaur and I wouldn’t have asked questions."

"It was a site you would never want to see outside of a bachelorette party–two strapping men in dark navy blue uniforms emerged through the doorway at the opposite end of the hall, their demeanor both surefooted yet cautious as they strode straight toward me."

"I sensed the officer was offended by my giggle. I could just hear the words getting muttered in his head, ‘…fucking queer.’ I just knew he interpreted my laugh as a telltale sign that I was secretly relishing all this male attention being doted on me and sexualizing his inadvertently tender act. Great, I thought, he thinks I have some Cinderella fantasy about getting my glass shoe slipped on by Prince Charming."

"Officer #2 began to quiz Uncle Stuart and Quinn. The two them went back and forth like a tennis rally, serving up example after example of my erratic, suicidal behavior. They were a merciless tag team. It sounded like a duet playlist of my insanity’s greatest hits album. It stung listening to all them talk as if I wasn’t in the room. I wanted to clear my throat and remind them."
