Drabble: The Gates

The Gates

“Did your life flash before your eyes?”

“Actually, it didn’t, it was more a list of regrets. I know, that sounds maudlin, but as I fell, it came down to the things I hadn’t done.”

“Like what?”

“Nothing big, no ‘I never reconciled with my father’ or any such. Just little things. I should have gotten to the tennis court more. I never tried baba ganoush. I never made love to a cellist.”

“Never made love to a cellist?”

“I always wanted to make love to a cellist.”

“So, how long do you think we wait here?”

“Couldn’t tell you.”
