It was too soon after my husband’s death to be kissing another man, especially not in the bathroom of the funeral home where his wake was being held.
When we briefly broke for air, he asked, “Are you a loud lover or a quiet one?”
It took me a few seconds to recognize what he was asking.
“We can’t,” I pleaded.
“It’s fine. I locked the door.”
“Resting in peace.” He would know. He embalmed him.
He kissed me again, and my legs jiggled like Jell-O.
His pants dropped to his ankles, and I dropped to my knees.
