Texting an ex, while ignoring the what could be next, while thinking about a never-was. How fucked up is my life?

Well, as long as the ex texting wasn't of the "drunk dialing" sort. And I am getting some ambivalence about the what's next. Not a good sign, dude. But...argh. The coulda beens...those will break your heart if you aren't careful.

My word verf was pornmoan. What happens when you are texting the ex, ignoring the what's next and thinking too much about the what could have been.

And btw. Last night, I was listening to an old Goo Goo Dolls cd and I started bawling when Black Balloon came on.

I have no idea why. And THAT bugs me.

Redos don't really exist you know, it will never be the first time you lived it again...You have to let those what could have beens go, you do realize that looking back on them you have a different perspective then what you had when you were actually living them. Its very easy to romanticize them looking back.

Easy 5 yrs 10 yrs 15 yrs later to look back and see it different. We have different information to work with at that point in our lives. Our view is different.

If the whats next is about Oklahoma, if its taking that much thought then I say its not whats next.

And that is way more input I am sure than you really wanted :O)...

There used to be this dude who blogged here. He was kind of hot looking but had weary looking eyes which I liked even more than the whole hot looking thing, believe it or not. It gave him character.

Then he like took off to like Kalamazoo or someplace to meet an ex girlfriend. We all had high hopes for him, hoped he'd get his groove back on and all that healthy shit. Well, he came back but seemed even more weary than he was before.

Now, he has like disappeared and I'm taking bets. Has Eric
1) ran off with the ex to open a bed and breakfast in Maine
2) started a detective agency where he finds dead beat dads and makes 'em pony up. (He probably has a wise cracking secretary and they probably secretly like each other but they won't act on it for a year or so...)
3) He is dealing with the black dogs and spending his days watching re-runs of The Fugitive and drinking some really good shit
4) joined a commune and when he comes back he will want us to call him Runs with Sooners.
or 5) Is in love and talking foolish nonsense all day long so...no time for blogging.

Any other ideas?

maria,
I am with you....given the world weary and sharp observational dialogue he always uses I suspect he is working on a case that involves a sharpe toungued broad with breasts like concrete

Hope you are ok Eric me old son!
