First Heartbreak

Ben has been talking about marrying Amy for months. I chose not to make a big deal of it. I neither encouraged nor discouraged it, but listened with an air of mild interest. The funniest conversation through his preschool infatuation went like this:

Me: “Hey Ben, what do you want to be when you grow up?”
Ben: “I don’t know about that working thing.”
Me: “Then maybe you can be a stay-at-home dad while your wife works.”
Ben: “I don’t know how Amy would feel about that.”

Today the conversation went like this:

Me: “Were you excited to see your friends at school after the break?”
Ben: “Yes, but…” (sigh) “Amy said she would marry me, but it was all a lie.”
Me: “Oh?”
Ben: “She said she can’t decide that until she’s 24.”
Me: “That sounds wise.”
Ben: (sigh)

I guess he’s back on the market.
