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.
