Like all droughts—especially sexual droughts—we use a lot of hindsight. Everything is woulda, coulda, shoulda, but we didn’t, and we probably won’t the next time. Hindsight doesn’t make us do the right thing. The right thing has passed. We’re reflective but not constructive. The next relationship, the next love will have the same hindsight. Why? Because it comes afterwards, and afterwards is usually when the other person has moved on, and could be married, or involved or tired of women who engage in more hindsight and foresight.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
