Wait, do not slam the door. Because I did not come to ask for him back. I came to teach you how to love him. We met each other in middle school, we got married at 20. You broke 23 years of marriage. Did you know that? You did not know that. Anyway, it doesn't matter cause he'll still come back to me. But when he comes back I want him to look the same, so pay attention. Bread only twice a week. Only healthy fats and without sugar. Other than that, meat with vegetables. And be careful cause he's allergic to nuts. So you wouldn't kill my baby. And when he'll want to leave, let him, alright?
