It can be even worse if that day also happens to be your 40th birthday.For Dolores, an unmarried and childless Nuyorican, St. Patrick’s Day — not to mention her birthday — are unpleasant reminders that time is no longer on her side.On the surface, Dolores seems to have it all — an Ivy league education, a spacious apartment in Brooklyn with breathtaking views of the Lower Manhattan skyline, a lucrative career as a probate lawyer, exotic sex appeal and the attention of some of New York’s most eligible bachelors — but something is still missing.Reflecting on her life, she wonders if she still has time to find a new man, date long enough to get know him, wait for him to propose to her, plan her dream wedding, exchange marital vows, move to the suburbs, give birth to the 2 or 3 children she’s longed for and rescue an adorable golden retriever to serve as their family’s lovable mascot. A year and a half earlier, her dream of domestic bliss seemed within reach, but one day life as she knew it changed forever.As much as she wants to find love again, she can’t seem to get over an old flame. As the day unfolds, she realizes that it may be too late. Will she be able to let go of the past or will she be doomed to a life of loneliness?This modern novelette is too long to be a short story and too short to be a novella. It contains just under 17,500 words.
