Triple date: popular Italian restaurant in Brookline’s Coolidge Corner. Ten years ago. I knew one of the waiters. Slipped in faster than if we’d been down on the list. Got a great booth. Toasted a birthday. Triple toasted an engagement. The proposal was days before, this was the first announcement. I remember pasta, booze, laughs and lots of kisses.

Fast forward: Three are married.

The proposal turned into two toddlers. The other guy married last summer. We were all there but his ex. Another awaits a proposal from the current boyfriend (who else?). Two are on the west coast. Single.
