Explain what ended your last relationship?
I don’t really have time to get into it now, but I took a trip to the U.P. in my 1963 Dodge Dart to visit my *ahem* “girlfriend” and came back on a Greyhound after meeting my “girlfriend’s” new boyfriend a few hours after my car’s engine exploded at 1:00AM in rural Michigan. I spent the night in the Milwaukee bus station and returned home with no car, no girlfriend, no cash, and no luggage.
