For Day 2 of the 25 songs in 25 days, I’m supposed to choose a song that reminds me of my most recent ex boyfriend. Except that it’s been more than 3 years since my last days as a singleton…and even longer than that since my last boyfriend before Brian.
So it seems odd to bring that up…plus I’ve already introduced you to him…and I was kind of bitchy about it…you remember my ex boyfriend and his manwife, right?
But a challenge is a challenge…and I’m not one to back down on Day 2 now, am I?
(Insert 37 minute pause to think about this. Also, during this time, include a Google search for best breakup songs of 2009…because there aren’t really any songs that make me think of this guy.)
Gives You Hell by The All-American Rejects
When The Bartender broke up with me, I wasn’t heartbroken; I was angry. It fueled a crazy need to be on my own for a while. It pushed me to become president of the Jaycees. It gave me a list of things I didn’t want in a boyf. And in the end, it was the kick I needed to remind me that I deserved real love. And really…I won. Because I have Brian. But for a long time, I hated him for choosing some college girl over me. So yeah. That song.
Do you have an ex that you don’t really ever think about? Or one that you do? Do you feel competitive with them? Did you win?
