Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Monday, August 21, 2006 8:13 PM

Sometimes we have to do tough things...we need to be honest about our feelings and what's truly in our heart. I had to do that today. It was tough...there were tears...and in the end, I hope that we can still be friends, even though I know it'll be a while before the hurt goes away. I think the news was received pretty good though.

“Look, its not you,” I started with. “It's me. Every time around this year I have to switch my focus...try something new...and I just don't think I'm going to have the same time for you that I have over the last few months. This has been a magical summer for us, and I will cherish it always. But I can't commit to just you anymore. I have needs, and I need to explore my options. In fact, I've met someone else. Now, I know this may be weird, but you both will need to coexist under the same roof. I don't want there to be any tension or hurt feelings between you two. In time I'm sure I can commit more to you, but in the mean time...I'm sorry, but you're just going to have to share me.“

I feel like a louse though. I mean, I didn't have the heart to bring up that I already had money down for the pre-order...I thought it was painful enough. Sigh...I just hope that WoW understands, but probably not. It's the first time in our gamer/video game relationship that we've had to deal with the yearly release of EA's Madden franchise. If you haven't gone through being the “Football Video Game Widow“, you just aren't prepared. Hopefully it'll get better over the years.

Happy Maddenolidy everyone!
