Got a message back from that girl. I feel so bad for her now. She said she keeps catching him in lies all the time and she just wants the truth. I think she's pretty young, maybe 20. She has no idea how much worse it can get. Of course, my ex has told her how horrible I was, so I'm surprised she still contacted me. Anyway, I told her some stuff and then told her to be really careful. I know back when I was in her position, it was my instinct to protect my man and I was in denial about some things, so it'll have to be up to her if she decides to stay with him. I just hope she makes the right decision. No one ever deserves to go through what I went through. Sometimes I've wondered if it was just my bad luck and maybe he'd be better to another girl but I see that was just wishful thinking.
I got my smile from the sunshine,
I got my tears from the rain.
I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
And a peacock taught me to be vain.
A little owl in a tree so high,
He taught me how to wink my eye.
I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
But the guy that lived two caves from me,
He taught me how to love.
Shallow Hal always reminds me of one the most insane periods of my life.
The night I saw it I was running around a casino in Vegas in a sexy dress and drinking heavily and just hanging out with whomever. I ended up watching it in some dude's room and I was so drunk I started crying at the end when he realizes she's fat. LMAO.
I didn't sleep in the guy's room, either. I was like "oh thanks for the free alcohol" and ditched him. I'm sure he wasn't too upset about that after he saw me crying over a Jack Black comedy.
This story is hilarious in retrospect, but let me tell you, the very next day I was like "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME."
