“AFFIANCED, pp. fitted with an ankle-ring for the ball-and-chain.” // a. bierce
i promise – i didn’t mean to be smart. (i couldn’t, even if i tried.)
it just happened that an idea + the date, (though it’s friday the 13th – which just amuses me even more) – happened to coincide with what i’ve heard is meant to be a very/the most romantic day indeed. and though i’m not one to partake, i say, you rock on with your bad selves, and have all the long-stemmed roses, teddy bears, chocolate hearts and, all the twinkly-romance you can muster. i for one, just happened to have balls and chains on the brain, (get your minds out of the gutter), and perhaps subconsciously – i’m thinking about my role in this topsy-turvy world, and how romance has changed since i was last single… OVER A DECADE AGO.
i guess i’m just someone’s ball and chain now. oh, these affairs of the heart, they’re so heavy…
