That Was Our Song

 Once upon a time, a few years back, I was walking down the sidewalk with my girlfriend at the time when a bum starting following us and singing “My Girl” by The Temptations. It’s a great song, but that was a lousy version so I didn’t give him any cash. Nonetheless “My Girl” became our song. Each time we heard it, it was like the universe was playing it for us and us alone. I loved that song because it reminded me of her. Then we broke up. I could no longer stand that song. Every time I heard it I would think of her. I hated that song because it reminded me of her. It took quite a while to be able to listen to it again. I can tolerate it in small doses now but it will never be the same way again. That was our song. It still is. That’s why I don’t want to hear it.

Talking to your Ex

Talking to your ex is usually a slippery slope. They are your ex for a reason. You obviously aren’t supposed to be together. But it’s almost impossible to shut out somebody who once meant the world to you. You miss your ex. You want to talk to your ex. And the more drunk and lonely you are, the more likely you are to call or text them. Drunk dialing is bad enough, but drunk dialing your ex is the lowest you can sink. Nothing good can come out of that conversation. Wait until you are sober if you absolutely have to talk to your ex. Keep the conversation light and keep it moving.  And try to keep your tears and desperate pleas for affection to a minimum. It’s not very becoming.
