I told him to leave a note on the door so I would know where he’d gone. I’d forgotten how specific you had to be when giving Jimmy instructions, so here I stand looking the fading yellow post-it note on the back door.
“Pick up your socks.”
“But honey, I did.”
“Why are they still on the floor?”
“That’s where they landed when I let go of them.”
It’s been three weeks since I sent him to buy avocados.
“Make sure they’re fresh.” I said as I shut the car door and left for work.
Maybe he went to Mexico.
