Punchline

A few days later, we tried to joke about it. Maybe we thought laughing would help. It was pretty stupid when you thought about it. That didn’t work, so we spent another day just ignoring it. Trying to stay away from it. Walking around it. Keeping our eyes off it.

Eventually something else happened and we gave that new thing our attention. We dove into this new thing. No hesitation. Tried to act as though this was all that ever was. And for a while it worked.

Then one night, it came back, like a dog scratching at the door.
