Reader, I didn’t marry him. Nice guy and he asked, but what woman in her right mind would settle down with an older guy with a crazy ex-wife. Okay, she wasn’t stuck in an attic, but then there was the matter of him not being Jewish. Oy. To top it off, he was color-blind, which led him to go through red lights, and he snored and he chewed with his mouth open—who wants to see that? We split up not so amicably and the very next week, he won PowerBall. Try chewing on that the rest of your life.
