Comma: “They are really nice people. The Prospect’s mother hugged me, then kept looking at me, the tears rolling down her face. There was so much love, so much affection on her face, Appi, it was unbelievable.”

I look at a photo of Comma with her head in Her Prospective Mother-in-Law’s lap.

Unbidden, the thought comes to me, that if by some absurd turn of events, as it happens in films,

1. So-On discovered that he loved me.
2.  He realized that all along the person he had ever loved was me, Appi.
3. And we got married after a breathless, breathtaking courtship,

Would I ever, ever be able to put my head in So-On’s mother’s lap? And have a photo taken of that moment? I think not. And that not-thought chills me.
