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.
