"No, no one in my family has left the church but me," he replied. "In fact, David's in the bishopric of his ward and his wife is Relief Society president. Here, I've got a picture somewhere." He flipped through the pile of pictures in his wallet and showed Lynn a photo of a smiling family.
Lynn looked it over. David was maybe a little thicker at the waist and thinner on top, but still handsome. His wife was no supermodel, but she wasn't too bad. And they and their three little girls looked happy. Lynn didn't know if perhaps she'd been secretly hoping things had gone badly for him, but she didn't begrudge him his happiness. She handed the photo back.
It was too bad for Lynn that she didn't also run into Rodney Grant, who went straight from the lecture hall to a local gay club earlier that day. That would have led to some more amusing trips down memory lane!
"Well, I'd better get going," said Andrew. "I promised my wife I'd meet her after her workshop." He finished his coffee and started to get up just as Rex was coming in the door.
"Oh, just a minute, I'd like you to meet my husband, Rex. Rex, this is April's old boyfriend, Andrew Denton," said Lynn as Rex approached the table.
"April's boyfriend?" Rex asked, a little confused.
"I have the distinction of being the only one," said Andrew. "We were kids together."
