No OJ No Cry

17 Nov

First break-ups are particularly traumatic.

After that, it’s a matter of practiced pain.

~Me to Aunty G, during an online conversation


Oh Mad Mommaaaaa, I’m by the phone!! :mrgreen:

    Why can’t it be practised pain for other hings too? Like waxing? Or doing your eyeborws? 😦

    Oh. But no. It hurts all the same… we just become better at pretending that it doesn’t…

    aneela z: Hey! How did he know what I meant? 🙂

    soin: Yeah.

    M4: 😉

    DewdropDream: It kinda is, right? You know the extent to anticipate, how long it will last and such like.

    Sue: Nope. Now I can die happy. 😛

    pri: You do? 🙂

    susiephoebebrown: Exactly why I said “practiced” pain. The pain doesn’t disappear. Not from the sentence, not from wherever it lodges itself inside us.
