Merriane was very angry that Matt gave her the, “You are too good for me” line.
They had been dating – hot and heavy- for three months and she was sure he was “The One.” They got along famously in every room of the house. He could cook, clean, shop, do laundry and did his best work in the bedroom. She had no complaints. And no clue.
She laughed when she told her girlfriends she would revel in a weekend of Chick Flicks and enjoy a lavish Menage a Trois – with Ben and Jerry. They knew she wasn’t kidding, The company had just introduced four new flavors: Truffle Kerfuffle, Urban Bourbon, Candy Bar Pie and Half Baked. She claimed it was Chocolate Therapy.
Merriane thought she paper the neighborhood with Matt UNwanted posters. Or she might do a ‘Blog a Bitch’ about her ex-boyfriend. She decided upon a thinly veiled account: Dirty little secrets – his worst fears, awful things he said about his friends and family. Next, she would take anything he left behind and begin auctioning it off on eBay or put it on the street with a “free “sign on it.
On a sugar high, she started her movie marathon with Thelma and Louise, Beaches, Mystic Pizza, and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
“I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor was her Mantra and her top song of the day – followed closely by “Cry Me a River, “These Boots Are Made for Walking” and, You’re So Vain.“
All it took was a couple of pints, a movie marathon, huge success on eBay, Break up songs blaring through the house, a good night’s sleep and the pity party was over.
Merriane knew she was alone,
but more importantly, she was now available.
Like Mary Tyler Moore throwing her hat in the air – she was back in the game.
