Sarah listens as her friend begins the litany. “He puts the TV on as soon as he wakes up, even though I’m asleep and he knows it’ll wake me up. He does the same thing at night: he puts on the radio, which either wakes me up or stops me from sleeping.” Sarah nods, takes a bite of salad. “He never changes the toilet paper roll when it’s empty, or replaces the garbage bag when he takes it out.” Sarah thinks, At least he takes the garbage out, but she says, “He acts like he’s still single.” Her friend stares.
