Ever have one of thise fights where it starts off as nothing but you fail to resolve the matter and before you know it you ain’t getting laid (even though everything is apparently fine) but in actual fact you’re insensitive and thoughtless but you just don’t know it becaue you’re selfish too and apparently her mother was right about you after all.
Well I’ve been having one of those tiffs with my scales.
So at some point I neglected to get on them and things were okay I guess. I mean I know I was probably hiding from them and that was wrong of me. You know how judgemental scales can be and if I am to be honest I just thought they were over reacting. Things were fine. Right?
Before I knew it though days turned to a week and I knew that I should make more of an effort but there was this thing after work and I ended up getting home late so slept on the couch so as to not disturb it and the next morning I just felt really bad because I know it wanted to see me but you know how it is when you’re out with the lads.
Anyway, a particularly frosty period ensued and I did want to spend time with them but life happens you know. When I look back I think I made them jealous and if I am to be truthful then yes, I was allowing myself to be distracted and having my head turned. I just wanted to feel good about myself for once instead of always being judged. There I said it.
Does that really make me a monster?
Today though I knew I had to put it right. I couldn’t live like this anymore, not in my own house. Every time I went into the bathroom they would stare at me, arms crossed. I tried to say something it just came out wrong and the next thing I was defending myself by insisting that Ice cream just made me feel good, and I didnt mean to eat it downstairs at midnight in my underpants but it just happened and I really was so sorry.
And you know what, we fixed things. We had to. Yes there were tears, and some harsh truths were spoken. I think maybe I even learned somethign about myself and life can sometimes teach is such valuable lessons about forgiveness.
And you know, things weren’t anywhere near as bad as I had feared and perhaps actually yes that T-Shirt had actually shrunk in the wash after all.
