I found out from a third-hand source some horrible, heart-sinking news that Elliot’s leaving us in June.


I wish I could talk about this with Elliot. I want to talk about this with him. But we’re not close enough where I can corner him and say, “Yo what’s up with that?!” I’m probably going to bring it up in one of our cab rides together Friday night. It’s no heart-to-heart, but it’s something.

It’s not like I didn’t see the signs coming. I’ve caught snippets of end-conversations between him and server Josh. But I just wasn’t able to fit the pieces together. And now I feel like the kid in class who was the last person to get the math problem on the board correct.

What will happen to Avec? And what will happen to me?
