An old ex is getting married this weekend. We aren't still friends and haven't talked in over 10 years. But his impending marriage made me remember a mixed CD that he had made for me. My first year of college I loved that CD. I couldn't really remember what songs were on it, but thought I remembered seeing it in the basement not to long ago. I went and dug it out and put it in my CD player. At the time when the ex made the CD, we had been together off and on for almost a year. Most of the songs were love songs, but as I kept listening one song really stuck out in my mind- U2's "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". HELLO!!! What?!?!
Why in the world did I not see that message written all over the wall a whole lot sooner!? Note to all men out there: that song has NO place in any kind of romance, unless, of course, you are trying to make your girl feel inadequate and crappy. Missed signs all over the place. Oh well. I think life turned out a whole lot better this way anyway!
P.S. The hubby wooed me with a mixed tape he called "mellow tape". Wonder how many other girls out there have a copy of the exact same "mellow tape" he made? Ah boys... so unoriginal, yet they try so hard :-)
