the last book I ever read (Asleep in the Sun (New York Review Books Classics) by Adolfo Bioy Casares, excerpt six)

from Asleep in the Sun by Adolfo Bioy Casares:

We were so busy with the simple events of everyday life—rather, with the happiness of being together—that I swear I completely forgot about the seventeenth, which is our anniversary. After dinner one night, goodness knows how, I remembered the date and right then and there I got up the courage to confess my neglect. Courage, every once in a while, receives its rewards. You’ll never guess what Diana said.

“I forgot it too. If people love each other all days are equal.”

“Equally important,” I said, articulating slowly and contentedly.
