Signing off

"So how do I sign off this email?" she asked her friend over the phone. She was emailing a copy of the divorce letter to the main character of her past life.

"Can't you just send it?" her friend answered.

"But I don't hate him... I guess I don't know what the boundaries are now for signing off a letter to someone you were so close with for 6.5 years, were wed to, etc. Can I use 'peace & spankings'? 'love & light'? XXOO? Do I just say: 'see ya around' ...?" her voice trailed off with other possibilities.

"You should sign it 'eXO'," her friend suggested with a straight face over the phone lines, until they both burst into a fit of laughter.
