The Guy at the Next Desk Over

​For many years, I worked for the IRS. I began as a tax examiner, responding to correspondence from taxpayers who were dealing with erroneous refunds, expected refunds not received, name changes, penalties—any sort of problem you can imagine that arises when people are dealing with a government bureaucracy.

“Life is a journey, Frannie darling," Feagan had once told me. "Choose well those with whom you travel."
As always, I've followed Feagan's counsel.”

“He took the hand that wasn’t holding the bou­quet of wildflowers and stared at it, holding it so tightly that she thought he might crack her bones. Then his hold gentled. He slipped a gold ring onto her finger and lifted his gaze to hers.

“I’m not a brave man; I’ll never be a hero, but I love you more than life itself, and I will until the day I die. With you by my side, I’m a better man than I’ve ever been alone.
