16 days. Remember when you asked me: "Why lover? With an 'er', like it's a job, an obligation?" And I just chuckled. You have these questions sometimes that I know not to engage because we'd end up arguing oftentimes. "Never mind," you said, "it's a stupid question." But then you added, "Funny thing is, it's not a job for me! It's something I want to do!" "Isn't that what a job is supposed to be?" I ask. Your face lit up and I felt a tenderness for you. "I don't have a replacement word yet so I'll stop questioning it."
