"Yes, we did the right thing when we ended it"

"Yes, I know where it went wrong"

"No, I don't want a 'do-over'"



Thanks for bringing a nostalgic chuckle to my day.

And good for you for holding out for the fairytale.

Coyote Mike said...

Yes I want the extra cheese.
Yes I asked for the thick crust.

No, you don't get a big tip.

Can you tell I'm hungry?

I like dismeg, but not datmeg :D

Anon Cow - You are far too kind, dear sir.

Beachgirl - Done and done.

SurrenderDorothy - I hold out because of stories like yours.

Coyote Mike - Not sure what to say here, babe. :)

Coyote Mike said...

The end of the week makes me sillier than normal.

Drunken Chud said...

heh. i noticed nowhere in there did you say you wouldn't sleep with him. or with me... so... life is starting to look up for me! w00t!

janestarr said...

That was honest, funny, and a little heartbreaking...I know exactly where you are, somewhere between over it and under it.

love

Scorpy said...

Damn...I could have written this and it would have meant almost the same to me but I would have written it from the opposite persepective. Very clever and I suspect a litle traumatic.

Indiana said...

Sometimes in the face of love remembered you have to be strong and realise all things that end do so for a reason...

Way to be truthful.

trueborn said...

Yeah. Fuck him.
He had his chance.
He blew it.
Some things are unforgettable. Forgivable but never forgettable, the scar tissue just won't allow the heart to snap back to it's original shape.
Stay strong Darlin.

meghansdiscontent said...

Coyote Mike - I recommend some food and rest. And possibly some attention.

Drunken Chud - I shant dash your hopes.

Janestarr - Thank you, babe. We all have our questions to answer when we run into exes.

Scorpy - Maybe you should take a stab at the other side of it. I think it would prove a nice contrast. :) Let me know.

Indiana - Truth eliminates whatever hope he may have had . . . and whatever hope I may have been secretly harboring. It was easiest and best.

Trueborn - Thanks, babe. I will.
