Melodrama for the brokenhearted
I was thinking about a friend I had once. I saw a show recently and wanted him to see it because he's the only one among that particular group of friends who can really appreciate a good melodrama. I also thought of him because my employer is hiring people in his field, and I wondered if he was looking for a job. I got all excited for a moment, thinking how great it would be if he moved out here.
Then I remembered.
Oh, yeah. He fell in love with me once. And I had to break his heart. For some reason, he doesn't keep in touch anymore.
So that's why I can't recommend the show and why I have no idea whether he's looking for a job and why he is a stranger now.
It doesn't seem fair that I broke his heart, and mine hurts, too. What separates drama from melodrama?
