Shoulda Swiped Left #16! Hannah and I share two fabulous dating stories, then Jake hops on and the three of us talk about a variety of things, from long-flight sleep strategies to what to do in New Zealand. Jake wants to officiate at a wedding that got its start on Tinder, thanks in some part to Jake and Amir. It seems that both of my kids are planning romantic getaways with non-romantic partners. It’s not your typical Shoulda Swiped Left episode, but it does offer a window on Hurwitz nuclear
family dynamics, which this week spanned continents, times zones, and hangovers. What can I say? It’s genuine and unique. Tune in!
Next week it’s back to short fiction. I am considering writing a story about how I broke my wrist on vacation here in Puerto Rico. I’d call it For God’s Sake Don’t Break Your Wrist On Vacation in Puerto Rico. Mightier Than the Sword returns when Stephanie Spaulding does—she’s in Italy, poor thing. Speaking of which, if you’re seeking writing advice, write to firstname.lastname@example.org and pit Mightier Than the Sword in the subject line. On-line daters out there: same email address, but write to me and Hannah with Shoulda Swiped Left in the subject line. We’d all love to hear from you!
