You were a man in an office filled with gossiping ladies. Every morning you put on pinstripes and sensible loafers and drove off to corporate America. When you left the house you were ringless, but at night you came home with a married man’s finger. On the walls of your cubicle: photos of your kid sister so you wouldn’t have to tell all those women about your live-in boyfriend. Me.
