Sometimes—like this afternoon—when Vicki and I sit here in her apartment, I can feel her studying me and wondering how it could happen.  She wants to ask, what was he like?  Even if I wanted, I could never explain—how it happened, what he was like.  Not for the shrink’s reasons—traumatic amnesia.  I don’t really believe in shrinks anyway—besides the fact that people like us don’t go to shrinks.  But not for the shrink’s reason.  No.  It’s that I never found out myself.  Simple enough.
