The party was going on without her. She sniffled loudly and added another tissue to the overflowing trash bucket. She wondered what they were talking about, wishing she was there. Her husband had decided to go to the party without her. After all, why should he stay home and listen to her cough and sneeze? But she felt left out anyway, and jealous of the fun time she was sure she was missing. She watched a sappy love story, one she knew her husband wouldn’t have wanted to watch. The choice of movie was a regretful one, producing more mucus and tissues as she cried her way through it. As the movie ended, she heard the door and her husband walked in. He handed her a brown bag. Her friends had sent home a bottle of wine with him and the note read; “It’s not as fun without you. This is for when you are better…” She closed her eyes, hugged the bottle and smiled. Thankful for her friends. Thankful to be missed.
