The Color Excerpts (Nov. 07, 2016)
This is the last excerpt from the book. I wanted to keep it short and simple and end with a question for everyone.
“Look at it this way, Mike—I’m a dog. I know this, and I embrace it. People can’t get mad at me for doing dog shit because that’s what’s expected of me.
You, on the other hand—you’re a stray with a collar. You look like
a family dog until your wolf instincts kick in. You’re no different
than me. Actually, you’re worse than me.”
Mike took a sip of his beer and raised it to salute Roc. “Says the
guy who just had a divorce.”
“True, but even with the rise and fall of my marriage, I’m still
ahead of you when it comes to loving and being loved. When was
the last time you had a serious relationship?”
“What is this—‘relationship helper’ now?”
“I’m just saying, with the exception of Junior, we’ll all be twenty-nine
years old next year. Next thing you know, we’ll be in our thirties
with nothing to show for our love lives but a bunch of stories
and broken hearts. I just want to know—when it boils down to it,
and you’re too old to be in the club, and it’s too late to start a family,
will you regret it?”
