Each time you pulled down the driveway, I wasn't sure when I would see you again

I was thinking last night, and it seems to me I spend an awful lot of time saying terrible things about my former partners, and its not very charitable of me at all, considering I did love them at one point, or at least I felt I did at the time.

I thought, for today, I might post a bit about my partner before Beloved [and to tell the truth I don't remember what I've called her, because I generally refer to her as the evil red head, which isnt nice at all] whom I am going to call Dimbrilliance, because I know she wouldn't object to that.

I can say these nice things about her -

She was very, very smart. Intelligent.

She was very pretty, and she didn't know it. She always seemed a little shy about her looks and I had always thought she was lovely.

She was the first person to take me to one of my favorite cities and I am very thankful for it. A lot of my vacations have been there and I would not have known about it if it werent for her.

She tempted me to try new foods at the Mexican restaurant in her home town, and I like a lot more food for it.

She was the person who introduced me to my love of scotch.

She was very funny. Witty. She always seemed to have something clever to say.

I liked talking to her. She had an opinion on everything. I was able to spend hours on the phone with her and not tire of it.

She was very patient.

There. See? I can be nice about my former partners. I am sure I could think of more kind things to say, but anymore is gratuitous, isnt it?

See, I could be nice about my ex, but I really don't feel any need to. We never shared anything that was special in its own right. She was a 13 month, painful footnote in my life I'd sooner forget.

So what was the name of the favourite city?

Oooh, that's a bit of a challenge to say nice things about my ex's. Not sure I'm up to the job.

That's a great attitude to have, Alecya! Kudos to you for finding the positive. =)

You know what I like best about my ex just prior to Randy?

His absence.

Good for you in seeking out the positive. I can say nice things about most of my exes too, and have enough distance now that for the most part I can remember the good times and wish them well. :0)
