"He went off with Angelina Jolie. They've got a daughter."

"No!" I wail. "But Jen and Brad were so perfect together! They looked so good and they had that lovely wedding picture and everything...."

I can see the anticipation in Eric's face and quickly search for something encouraging to say.

"That was lovely! Very..." I trail off, unable to think of a single word other than quick, which I'm not sure hits the right note.

"It didn't bring back any memories?" Eric is studying my face.

"Well...no," I say apologetically. "But, I mean, that doesn't mean it wasn't really... I mean it was... I feel quite turned on!" The words come out before I can stop them.
