The Mules Give Surprisingly Thoughtful Gifts

For my birthday, The Mules gave me
a t-shirt that said My Legitimate across
the back. I never wore it in public--
just around the house or to bed. There were
toothpaste stains all down the front,
and it was usually covered in cat hair.
I made it clear that I hated it without actually
saying that I hated it. They never
seemed to mind, which made me hate it
even more. On New Year's Eve, home
alone, wearing the shirt, I watched
the ball drop and made a resolution to be
more emotionally available. And kept it.
