Daily Routine

by Rebecca Jane

I have learned that like history, mystery repeats itself. Have you ever seen that movie Groundhog Day with Bill Murray? My life has repetition, too, but mine is different. Every afternoon, at 4, I come home from my administrative job to find my spouse rolling in bed with the same skinny, nameless mistress. Every time I open the bedroom door, they're shocked as if cheating has never ever been revealed. I confess: I have tried every reaction in the book, but this "discovering betrayal" drama just repeats itself day after day.


Rebecca Jane, author of A Tune to Croon in the Suspect Room, writes fiction to stay out of trouble. She always grins. She sometimes fails. She never squeals.
