It's, like, break-up season . . .

10,000 points to anyone who can tell me what show the title of this post is from.

I had this theory in college that telling your roommate that you were going to be living with someone else next year was much more difficult and dramatic than breaking up with your boyfriend. The two situations are so similar that it's actually humorous.

Think about it . . .
  • We need to talk.
  • I just like you too much to let this ruin our friendship.
  • It's not you, it's me.
  • It's normal for two people to drift apart.
  • I've kind of been talking to someone else.
  • Things just kind of worked out this way.
  • Our schedules just make it really hard and I don't think either of us is willing to change that.
  • I just feel like we'd be better friends if we weren't roommates/dating.
All applicable in both situations.

And the older I get, the more I realize that there will always be situations in which you feel like someone's breaking up with you.

So kids, just remember that you're never too old to get dumped.

{insert Donna Downer noise here}
And yes, I know it's supposed to be "Debbie Downer" but my friend Debbie isn't that fond of the saying so we changed it up a little.

If you really want your ex-roommates to hate you, just tell them you're getting married. I might as well have slashed their tires and short sheeted their beds.
