Myrtle: Men… I cut em out. I came home from the hospital and found a woman in my bed, with my boyfriend, that I was with for 19 years. I cut him loose cold turkey.
BW: I’m sorry. Guess he didn’t know you were coming home?
Myrtle: Nuhuh. Something told me to come home and I did. I was fixin’ to throw him out the window. She ran out the door.
BW: When did that happen?
Myrtle: Oh, that’s been about 18 years ago now
BW: And, you still haven’t had anything to do with men in all that time?
Myrtle: No. I won’t now. I’m fine just like I am.
BW: If you don’t have a man in your life, do you have anyone?
Myrtle: Yeah, alcohol. It makes me feel a little bit better.
BW: Are you an alcoholic?
Myrtle: No, I just like to drink.
BW: *smile* that used to be my line.
