"You always have. You love cars. Remember that time
we took Jason’s Maserati when he wasn’t home because
you wanted to drive it so badly? But you backed it into a
pole. I know I took the blame and everything but he would
not look at me for a week and he stayed at his mother’s.
I miss it — but I miss Oliver more. Alone time’s nice, though.
My limit? My limit is like… one Cosmo — so you can imagine.
Well… you’re still going to Grandma and Grandpa’s sixtieth
anniversary in Plymouth next month? We’re definitely going
to drink excessively for that. It’s also Dad’s birthday and
Grandma wants us to bring flowers for his grave. You should
have seen Ian’s face. Did he mention it to you?”
“I do. I think I’m a bit obsessed. If I wasn’t a police officer
I probably would’ve worked with cars somehow. Oh yeah, I
remember that. I was making plans to move to Switzerland
to keep him from killing me. Such a good sister you are for
doing that too. I was scared for your life though. Really? He
was that upset about it?? How much did you end up drinking
though? ——Yeah, I’m planning to go. I don’t want to miss that
mostly because I don’t want to hear about how I didn’t show
up for the next year and a half. Drinking, excellent. Don’t let me
go overboard on the drinks. I don’t want to give our grandparents
a heart attack or have grandpa side eyeing me and looking thoroughly
disgusted with me all night like at the last family get together. She
wants us to what now? No — he didn’t, but I can only imagine the look
he gave. Is this flowers deal like an optional thing? — or?”
"That is actually the two most opposite ages you could possibly string together, Cass. You—Goddamn it. What? That’s my f—clue? That’s it? No, try again."
“I will compare and string together what I want thank you very much.
Um, yeah. That’s your clue. Try again? How about no? You asked for a clue.
‘A’ as in one. And you didn’t say it had to be especially helpful. Use that brain
of yours. Start checking weird places like the cabinet or — oh I don’t know — your
"Sometimes you have to stay for the car. I mean, I’ve never
stayed for a car but you definitely did. Yeah —
show your children that one day, I’ll show mine. But, you know
what Cass? I didn’t! That’s the thing. I wasn’t actually planning
on drinking much, but as soon as we walked up to the bar
it was the end for me. Yeah, I think you were working late,
you mentioned, so I didn’t bother asking. We didn’t stay long.”
“The car was a beauty. You can’t blame me for being drawn
to it. I’m not sure I actually stayed for the car, but his car is how
I met him. Alright, I guess we could show them. Give all the kids
a good laugh. Of course you didn’t plan it, but you probably let it
happen because you were off mom duty. I mean, at a certain point you
must have hit your original limit, but thought, “ah, I can have one
more drink. It’s not like I’ve got the kid to worry about.” so you drank
more. Damn, I hate when work makes me miss the good stuff.”

"You’re telling me. And why? Do you still have feelings for him?
You do, don’t you? He said that? It’s all good? He said that?
Yeah — I would have done the same. At least you sent an
anonymous letter. What? Really? That bad, huh? Like husband,
like wife, I guess. And I did! I did that. I don’t know why, you know,
I finally had a night away from mum-ing and I took advantage of it
too much. Way too much. Too much. A lot. Much. Too much. You
were — I think you were working that night.”
“Hell no. I have more feelings for his car. I keep that photograph
for the laughs. You saw for yourself what a calamity that picture was.
How could I not keep it? And yes. Yes, he did say that and yes that
bad. Yeah you do know why. You just said it. You had a baby-free
night and so you got out of your mind drunk. It’s understandable.
Personally, I’m proud of you for walking on the wild side for a change.
Hm, I probably was. You know, now that I think about it, I work a lot
— Probably not as much as you, but a lot. ”
