Last month, I announced a new series of short memoirs, Stories from My Life. If you missed it, you can read about it here.
There are eight memoirs in the series. The first is Dream Baby. Today I’m introducing the second, Asses Anonymous, a story of boyhood friends on a harrowing journey. Here’s an excerpt:
It started as a way to get to school. We trudged through suburban neighborhoods, lugging our books and lunches, laughing, arguing, becoming friends in that edgy, uncomfortable way that boys do.
Our journey together ended with a walk that was longer than any of the others, into a chapel, down an aisle, toward a box that contained unthinkable things and unknowable questions, questions that I still am asking today.
