Josh H, photographed by Josh K, Key West lighthouse, October 26, 2009
We could get all theatrical and dramatic about it, sort of like the photo above. Doesn't that picture kind of remind you of one of those epic paintings featuring French revolutionaries with the woman in Grecian robes out front with one boob hanging out, defiant and proud and brave in the face of battle? (And why always just the one boob, I ask you. Why?)
Anyway, fine, let's do this the "just the facts, ma'am" way, cuz we all know this stuff ain't really that fun to talk about.
So: I'm single again.
The Cliff's Notes version? It was an amicable split, agreed upon by both of us. (Still, not exactly a barrel of monkeys, though, you know?)
The next morning I mentioned my breakup online and less than an hour later friends swooped in and, like magic, an apartment surfaced. Next week I'm moving out of my Upper East Side zip code and returning to Hell's Kitchen, just around the corner from Josh K.
