from Clobbered by Camembert
by author Avery Aames
But enough about food. What's even more exciting about the faire is all the new people who will come to town. It's a huge tourist draw. A friend of my mother's is coming, a woman who knew her way back when. I'm hoping to get a little time with her. I'd love to hear more about my mother when she was a girl. I have so many of her mementoes--lace doilies, CDs. I can still hear songs she sang to me. But I want to know more. Which boys did she like? Who broke her heart?
Not that I hope anyone broke her heart. Mine was broken years ago and it didn't feel good. Needless to say, I don't know what I would do if I ever ran into my ex. Punch him? Yell? Tuck into myself and keep the wounds covered with emotional tape? I'm not sure I will ever feel fully confident after what he did to me. He left in the middle of the might without a word. He ran off to Paris to become a crepe chef, the creep.
How do you deal with that? If someone breaks your heart, what do you do? Do you simply bury the past? Or do you try to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it in the future? I'm doing my best with Jordan, but that past...it still haunts me.
