Admit your "Mary!" moments!

I was caught in really shitty Bay Area traffic today, and Adele's "Someone Like You" came on. There I was, driving alone, and remembering my first gay fling in college. I wasn't out but was fucking IN LOVE with this dude, who was also conflicted and closeted and just generally messed up. Anyway, we went separate ways. I was heartbroken, but I moved on. I looked him up years later and emailed him, and he responded by telling me he was married. To a woman. It is 15 years since I last laid eyes on him, and I love my current partner, but I still think about him. A LOT. First young love is so devastating. Anyway, one of the first lines of that song is "I hear you're married now" or something, and then with her voice and the melody and my memories, it made me cry for the entire drive home. Yearning for years and love lost. Then I got home to my partner and my real adult life, and laughed at myself for being such a Mary. So admit yours!

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend.
