Day 24 - A song you have danced to with your best friend
Let’s be honest, Maphia. Most guys just don’t dance. They certainly don’t dance together. Well, in my experience, anyhow. So this leaves me with the dubious task of picking a song I danced to with a female best friend, and since I only dance at weddings that means the only choice I have available to me here is Superbitch, who at one point was my best friend and someone I truly thought I would spend the rest of my life with. Ah, the ignorance of youth…
She and I danced together to many songs over our six-year relationship, most of them I don’t recall because drunk. The one I do recall once held a special place in my heart, because it represented so perfectly how I felt about our marriage. It was the song we first danced to as husband and wife, and I gently crooned it into her ears as we swayed back and forth across the dance floor.
Admittedly, I’m getting a little choked up at the moment. There was once a time when we both loved each other fully and deeply, and I have no idea how it all went so horribly wrong so fucking fast. There’s a line in the song which goes, “Only you and I can undo all that we became,” and that is precisely what happened. We undid it with stubbornness and not confiding in one another.
When I look back now I try to focus on the good things and not the bad, and remember that despite how fucked up it all turned out in the end I have a beautiful child as a result of this ill-fated marriage. That alone makes it all worth it.
