New Things in My Life

Adjust

By Lydia Davis, from a manuscript in progress. Her collection of essays, Essays One, will be published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in November.

It takes me so long to get used to new things in my life that when I am tired I call my husband by the name of that other husband I used to have, although it was a long time ago by now, and this new son by the name of that first son I had, who was in my life for ten long years before this one came. But it is worse than that, since when I am even more tired, I remember only the other husband and the first son.
