The World is Something Else

Got married straight out of high school. To a guy I knew since fifth grade summer camp. Summer wedding. Guests were mostly mosquitos. We had a baby boy, then a toddler, now a teen. Last year my husband phones me at work, says he’s got a boyfriend named Dale, says they’re movin’ in together. Says he’s sorry, says he loves me, but not like that.
“What else is there?” I say. You think the world is somethin’ and it turns out to be something else.

Sheriff’s deputy Gloria Burgle (played by Carrie Coon), from the TV series Fargo.

What else is there? Exactly.
