Dear Miles: “I’m in Love With a Stranger From a Stolen Picture”
I’m on vacation through May 13th, and in my absence Miles has offered to guest write a couple of columns. Here’s one of them:
Dear Miles, Five years ago I stole someone’s purse. I was going through her wallet when I noticed the picture of her and her boyfriend. It caught my attention. I held on to the the picture and still look at it from time to time. The guy isn’t normally my type but there’s something about his smile I can’t get out of my head. I’m sure they’re broken up by now. I still have her info and could easily track him down but I’m afraid I’d only be disappointed. Am I better off living with the fantasy? Am I being a coward? Or am I just over thinking the whole thing? — Stolen Heart
Dear Stolen Heart,
I like to cover my eyes with my paw when I sleep on the bed. I like to sleep on my side with my paw over my eyes and the tip of my tongue sticking out of my mouth. It’s my way of blowing off steam. Some mornings I wish I could wake up, put on a suit, and go to an office. I would hide under a table in a conference room while everyone negotiates a business contract. Then I would run out, at the end of the meeting, when everyone is shaking hands.
