He looked like he didn't even lose a wink of sleep worrying over their relationship.
I felt another powerful urge to kick him.
"Do you want to talk about it?" I asked.
Carmen shook his head.
"Look, if it's a problem... there... then the doctors can help..." I pressed forward.
I glared angrily. "FINE!" I stormed off in a huff.
I ran my fingers over my cheeks. Was it because I turned 30?
I was stunned. "You don't want any more babies?" I asked, surprised.
Carmen pushed on, "I made an appointment with the Dr. Landgraab about getting snipped. Are you okay with that?"
My mouth opened and closed a few times. "I don't know," I hedged. Now it was my turn to run away. I didn't know how I felt about it! We'd never really talked about family planning before. But, I kind of wanted a little boy.
He stepped back into the shower and started scrubbing.
I flicked him an annoyed look.
You know what, screw this. I'm just not feeling it.
Maybe tomorrow would be better...
"You're not mad?" Carmen asked.
"I'm only mad that you didn't think to talk to me about it before now."
"Sure! What can go wrong?" I asked naively.
