I'm still facing the backlash. Even today, 18 months later, I get a snide remark here or there. Like a certain fat admin chick coming stealing a moment at the cafe to tell me 'easy love' doesn't lead to marriage (Seriously, we're talking about marriage here. I don't know about easy love , but marriage is going to come out of fabulous love not secret stories any way).
If it weren't for my support group and conviction in myself, it wouldn't have been possible. I was going to say 'easy' instead of 'possible' when my fingers stopped, almost substituting my brain for that moment.
I don't think much about the subject now. Its stale. As are all the people associated with it. That face is stale. What was good then.....rehearsed movie quotes, false stories about idealism and morality, and others that I'll probably remember if I try real hard, hardly makes the list now. Its probably the best thing that happened to me because when I do close my eyes, tune out of now and think of the time between now and then....looks like we've come a long way!
Crash Into Me, Dave Mathews Band should be mentioned here too.
