Little Plastic Castle
« on: May 04, 2007, 04:35:22 PM »
So, I just got a call from my ex, one of them, who tried to give me grief about moving, insinuating that the move is "a little soon" and giving me his grief trip in letting go.  He was surprised that I had sold my possessions, and that I had bought a car.  Meanwhile, he wasn't available when I was in the hospital, and didn't call me back for 2 days after I needed his help.

I don't know why this is making me so angry, perhaps its his delayed interest in my life, or that he is genuinely sad that I'm leaving.  But I just think he needs to STFU and move on.  I feel moved to anger that he should even question my decisions given the lack of participation he has had in my life, in general - when I wasn't busy dumping him twice.

Sometimes, I wish I were blindly dense, and just rode the waves of life as they came to me...  effortlessly moving through the mundane of life with a stupor of happiness and contentment.  Smiling all the while.


"they say goldfish
have no memory
I guess their lives are much like mine

and the little
plastic castle
is a surprise everytime

and its hard to say if they're happy
but they don't seem much to mind..."  - Little Plastic Castle, Ani DiFranco
