I decided to look at the Modern Love series from the New York Times for the assignment because I often read the essays and really like most of them. I chose this one because while reading through it, it felt very real and honest and not very dramatic. I laughed at the part where Sen felt she was being upstaged by the birds, wishing her husband payed more attention to her than them. I was interested with the title and I was kept interested by her conversational tone and the familiar feelings of second-guessing and jealousy I think everyone feels once in a while.
