The Crucifixion Day!

Jeff and Mindy broke up after the big crucifixion.

"We watched the condemned man devolve into just a stretch of skin and bones and more and more strained wails of pain and we didn't say it then but we were both thinking, 'That's our relationship up there on that cross.'" Jeff throws a rock into the lake and you both watch the ripples.

"How'd she take it?" you ask.

Jeff laughs. "It was her idea," he says. "On the subway ride home, she said, 'Our love is in worse shape than that guy who died today, and it didn't even have to steal a car like he did. All our love had to do to get ripped to shreds is be the love thst is ours.'"

Jeff says now that he and Mindy broke up he's gonna stay alone for a while.

"And I don't think I'm going to view any more public crucifixions. They kinda bum me out."

You don't get this last part. You decide he's just depressed.

Happy The Crucifixion Day!
