Here’s a fun little conversation I had a little while back.
Him: “I just want to get her drunk one time!”
Me: “For what? So you can sleep with her? I bet you anything she still won’t.”
Him: “No… everyone loosens up when they’re drunk! Her personality is down here around me but I bet it would be up here if she was drunk.”
Me: “I think she acts that way around you for a reason…”
Him: “Well… maybe if she was drunk she would tell me why. Drunk words are sober thoughts or whatever.”
Me: “I don’t know… I’ve had someone tell me something drunk then the next day it wasn’t true.”
Him: “Are you really going to rub that in my face?”
Me: “Are you going to take back that last statement then?”
Him: Nervous laughter
Welcome to my life. Don’t tell someone you like them when your drunk and then try to take it back the next morning! That messes with people. END OF STORY.
We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. We are all helpless. It just depends on the day.
I hope you learn to block out the words that will just devastate you. That’s been a tough lesson for me to learn.
