Maybe his cubby-bed business blows up and he moves?
“Death by oversquinting.”
One Valentine’s Day, in 1995, Bill approached me in the newsroom. I was an assistant editor who’d been typing his captions for a couple of years, but I didn’t know if he saw me as more than just another one of the “kids” he patted on the shoulder as he raced around town on his bicycle.
“Can I ask you a question, young man?” he asked. “That Brazilian fellow — is he your special friend?” He was referencing my then-boyfriend, Carlos Emilio, a photographer whom Bill had seen me with at parties. I told him yes.
“That’s what I thought,” said Bill as he unzipped the worn, vinyl shoulder bag he always carried. He pulled out an eight-by-ten manila envelope with the New York Times logo, and he handed it to me. Inside, I found the most extraordinary valentine. There was a red cardboard heart about eight inches wide with a doily pasted on it, and then two polka-dot hearts that were inset with a cut-out black-and-white photo of Carlos and a matching photo of me. I was awestruck and dumbstruck by this quiet gesture: Bill had been paying close attention to my romantic life.

Marking the date for the next Decadestwo pop up. I walked away last time with tan Prada boots and maroon Brian Atwood pumps…and serious regret over the zebra-print ponyhair heels that I put back against my better judgement.
This time I’ll be better prepared.
