I knocked over his drink with my foot on its way to my mouth. I slunk into this bar the same way that now I'm slinking out. But the long walk back to my house oughta clear my head, and make me remember why I'm grateful for all the space in my bed.
Well, I'm sorry that there won't be a wedding, Dad, but I'm the best lover that I ever had.
And don't I know that when you're from where I'm from, 25 gets to be damn old for a girl not to have a rugrat on her back and another waiting in the hold. But I don't think I came here to make you a grandpa, and I don't think you'll feel better about me if I prove I can be a mom.
Well, I'm sorry that there won't be a baby, Dad. I'm kinda childish myself, and I don't see an end to that. And I'm sorry that there won't be a wedding, Dad, but I'm the best lover that I ever had, and this world's quite full enough of people in love.
