I had a horrible weekend. I hurt someone who absolutely does not deserve to be hurt. The worst part about it is that I can’t apologize for it because I know I did the right thing. I just revealed the truth but sometimes the truth absolutely sucks.
Now everybody can make their decisions based on the facts instead of incorrect assumptions. Some of those decisions could wreck havoc on my emotions. Just waiting to see how everything is going to turn out is gut wrenchingly awful.
And you know, this weekend started out so wonderfully. Friday night and a good part of Saturday were pretty great. If I could have just been a little more selfish I could have kept my mouth shut and saved the bad news for a time when I could have been tad more removed from the immediate fallout. Then I could have enjoyed Saturday night and Sunday as well. I did try to lighten my mood Sunday night by watching Mama Mia while sipping at a Strawberry Lemonade Martini but of course that didn’t work. I should have rented a horror movie and drank out of the friggin’ bottle because no amount of froth was going to be enough to make me laugh.
But again, my only real regret is that the truth isn’t different than it is. God, I can’t tell you how much I regret that. But telling the truth? No, that had to be done. And who knows, maybe everything will work out but even so I think tonight I’ll be exchanging Mama Mia for The Reaping. A bunch of old testament-style plagues causing havoc in modern America might just be unrealistic enough for me to escape into. Singing, dancing people will only remind me of what this weekend could have been about…and wasn’t.
