30 Days Of Truth – Day Fourteen

Day 14 – A hero that has let you down. (letter)

Dear Person Who Doesn’t Exist,

You disappoint me in your nonexistence.  Reveal yourself so I can be let down by your inability to be super-human and unconditionally perfect.  I will forgive you for being you and you can forgive me for having unrealistic expections and we’ll move on.  I might even invite you over for a drink (I make a pretty strong screwdriver) and we’ll laugh and laugh about that silly pedestal I had you on.  Then we’ll get drunk.  Rowdy drunk.  I’ll say things I’ll later regret about you being a disappointment to the whole of mankind.  You’ll say things you’ll regret about me and my oversized hands.  I’ll probably slap your regular, un-heroic face.  You’ll stare at me shocked, holding your cheek with your stupid normal-sized hands.  Then we’ll fall into a blubbering pile of sobs and broken dreams.  We’ll hug and make up (again).  I’ll call you a cab, you’ll go home, and I’ll “accidentally” lose your number.  Because, man, THAT was awkward.

Love, Jen O.

    • See, that’s what I’m talking about. I don’t put people up on a pedestal and think of them as a hero anymore because we all falter. Robert Munsch is fantastic, a writer I deeply admire and have since childhood, but the pressure of being someone’s hero is unfair. I may have referred to him as a hero in my post on MamaPop, but I didn’t really mean it that way. Or at least I realize how unrealistic that title is to give to people.
