“I was out for another walk when Lee arrived home the following afternoon. I took a bath before seeing him. There was a show of my work at a gallery in town that evening and he suggested we go to dinner beforehand. “I thought we’d just have eggs and toast here,” I texted from the bath. I was interested in limiting the number of minutes spent outside my bathroom. I texted Lee and asked if he could bring a bagel in to me instead. He sat on the edge of the tub, telling me about his trip as I lay in the lukewarm water with a cigarette and a glass of champagne. I no longer felt hungry and the bagel became an unwanted accessory on the plate beside me.”
