“I’m telling you, Frankie; she really likes you. You should ask Liz out. She’d love it.” Chris said, fixing a gaze at me that I interpreted as, you’d better say yes or stop complaining to me about being alone.

I didn’t answer.

All I could think was, Why’s my old girlfriend asking me this? Is this a joke I’m not getting?
