A Toast to My Sorry Life

A short excerpt from “A Toast to My Sorry Life”  a story from my latest book – Broken in Pieces

Harold promised me the world, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that he was having a hard time delivering on any of his big promises. After seven years of marriage, two miscarriages and a shitload of disappointments, I came to the realization that I’d made a huge mistake. Unfortunately, by that time, we were in deep debt and had little or nothing to show for the poor financial decisions we had made over the years.

Harold opens his eyes for a second, makes a snorting sound, wipes the drool from the side of his mouth against the arm of the fake Lazy Boy, and falls back asleep.

As I stare at him, I feel warm tears run down my cheeks.

You ruined my life, you son of a bitch, I think. What the hell did I ever see in you?
