Awkward moments

This weekend I witnessed a horrible breakup. A friend of mine and her boyfriend in a cigar bar. I hate cigar bars but I went with her to the cigar bar so her boyfriend could breakup with her face to face. I was sitting on a stool next to a stranger holding a bud light that I didn't feel like drinking. I was tipsy from a horrible gin and tonic from the previous bar. We sat there and tried to talk to give them some privacy but I could still hear most of the conversation. She left the bar in tears. I would have too.

The cab ride home was an argument with the cabbie. I don't even remember what it was about just that I was trying to keep the peace. I ended up paying a $35.00 cab fare. I just wanted to get home and get to bed.

My friend seems to be doing ok and has completely cut her ex out of her life. I wish I had suck a "fuck you attitude" when it comes to breakups but instead I usually wallow in self pity and stalk their facebook page while crying. It's quite a pretty picture.

This weekend I'm baking cookies with my mom. Quite the turn around from the previous weekend of well gin, tears and angry cabbies.


  1. I baked cookies with my mom last weekend! :) Isn't it fun actually LIKING your family enough to be around them when you don't have to be?

  2. I think baking cookies is gonna help a lot. I wish I had that attitude with break ups too, but sadly I don't Break ups from three years ago are still affecting me. Just. Damn.

  3. Ouch. At least the guy had the decency to do it in person. I know of a couple of guys who broke up via text message - one of which was to cancel a wedding! So there's some juicy gossip about people you don't know... hehehe.

  4. My friend got dumped over the weekend, too- he broke up with her over the phone before they were supposed to go to a party. Are people trying to get breakups overwith before Christmas and New Year's Eve or something?

  5. I'm pretty much the same with you with break ups. That does sound like an awkward situation though.
